mDNS Spoofer



This module will listen for mDNS multicast requests on 5353/udp for A and AAAA record queries, and respond with a spoofed IP address (assuming the request matches our regex).

Module Options

To display the available options, load the module within the Metasploit console and run the commands 'show options' or 'show advanced':

msf > use auxiliary/spoof/mdns/mdns_response
msf auxiliary(mdns_response) > show actions
msf auxiliary(mdns_response) > set ACTION < action-name >
msf auxiliary(mdns_response) > show options
    ...show and set options...
msf auxiliary(mdns_response) > run 

Time is precious, so I don’t want to do something manually that I can automate. Leveraging the Metasploit Framework when automating any task keeps us from having to re-create the wheel as we can use the existing libraries and focus our efforts where it matters.
