Only kids want to use SQL injections to be destructive. The pros use them to gain passwords for access, also to deface sites.(alot of people use the same passswords for everything. So if they gain the email address, a user name and password. Then they can go google dorking / phishing for more accounts with different services that the person uses and gain access to those services. A properly formed injection can pull data from other tables and display it places the original data was supposed to appear. 

So a photo album plugin they might decide to place usernames and passwords inside the places where the photo links will appear them. 

I'm in no way a pro at sql injections.
