forge replies to DNS address / pointer queries
dnsspoof [-i interface] [-f hostsfile]
dnsspoof forges replies to arbitrary DNS address / pointer queries
on the LAN. This is useful in bypassing hostname-based access controls,
or in implementing a variety of man-in-the-middle attacks.
- -i interface
Specify the interface to use.
- -f hostsfile
Specify the pathname of a file in hosts(5) format. Only one hostname
allowed per line (no aliases), although hostnames may contain
wildcards (such as *.doubleclick.net).
Specify a tcpdump(8) filter expression to select traffic to sniff.
If no hostsfile is specified, replies will be forged for all
address queries on the LAN with an answer of the local machine's IP
Sample hosts file.
