Rogue one – A rogue DNS detector

A PoC tool for analyzing a rogue DNS server


This tool could be used for checking maliciousness of a DNS server and extracting landing pages.

How it works

dns

IPv4 space is vast. But an attacker could secure a few numbers of IP addresses for landing pages. It means you can (probably) find malicious landing pages by using the following methods.

  • Resolving a bunch of domains by using a DNS server.
  • Finding frequent IPv4s from the resolutions. They might be landing pages.
  • If a DNS server has landing pages, it might be a rogue one.

Requirements

  • Ruby 3.x / Ruby 2.7+

Installation

gem install rogue_one

Usage

$ rogue_one
Commands:
  rogue_one help [COMMAND]       # Describe available commands or one specific command
  rogue_one report [DNS_SERVER]  # Show a report of a given DNS server

$ rogue_one help report
Usage:
  rogue_one report [DNS_SERVER]

Options:
  [--custom-list=CUSTOM_LIST]    # A path to a custom list of domains
  [--default-list=DEFAULT_LIST]  # A default list of top 100 domains (Alexa or Fortune)
                                 # Default: alexa
  [--record-type=RECORD_TYPE]    # A type of the DNS resource to check
                                 # Default: A
  [--threshold=N]                # Threshold value for determining malicious or not
  [--verbose], [--no-verbose]

Show a report of a given DNS server
