PorkBind v1.3 – Nameserver (DNS) Security Scanner

Check Your Web Security with Acunetix

This program retrieves version information for the nameservers of a domain and produces a report that describes possible vulnerabilities of each.

Vulnerability information is configurable through a configuration file; the default is porkbind.conf. Each nameserver is tested for recursive queries and zone transfers. The code is parallelized with libpthread.

Changes for v1.3

  • Wrote in-a-bind shell script that scans random domain names from DMOZ
  • Implemented recursive query testing
  • Changed porkbind.conf to use CVE numbers in addition to CERT alerts
  • Modified text displayed on stdout to make it more parsable
  • Licensed with GNU Lesser General Public License
  • Fixed timeout/concurrency/memory corruption bugs
  • Fixed improper comparison of alpha/beta version numbering bug
  • Added typecasts to silence compiler warnings

The tool now scans for 14 flaws and reports CVE numbers & CERT.
