The DNS server that WSL2 uses returns records in a different way to a normal DNS server and because of this I ended up trying to log into the wrong server. This is my quick analysis of what is different, and what it caused to happen.
I recently did a test against a company and in the debrief they asked how I managed to enumerate so many of their subdomains as they were using a wildcard DNS setup and the previous tester had commented that it prevented DNS enumeration. When I explained to them how the wildcard only obscured valid domains they had a few choice words for the previous tester and I figured it would make a nice little blog post.
This is my attempt to collect enough data to be able to answer the eternal question, 'How do I get started in Information Security?'. I've put together a questionnaire which I'll summarize the answers from and hopefully present at conferences and also summarise here on the site.
The story of how I analysed a new IP web camera and found how it automatically tried to punch a hole through my firewall and register itself with dynamic DNS server to tell the world it was there. The slides also contain a bonus talk covering my blog post and project on 'Whats in Amazon's buckets'
Ever found yourself in a position where you have to teach or explain DNS zone transfers but not had a domain to run the transfer on? This domain is set up to allow transfers and contains plenty of information to work with. I've also explained how I would interpret the information.
