Responder – LLMNR, MDNS and NBT-NS Poisoner

Find your website's Achilles' Heel

Responder is an LLMNR, NBT-NS and MDNS poisoner. It will answer to specific NBT-NS (NetBIOS Name Service) queries based on their name suffix (see: NetBIOS Suffixes). By default, the tool will only answer to File Server Service request, which is for SMB.

Responder - LLMNR, MDNS and NBT-NS Poisoner

The concept behind this is to target our answers, and be stealthier on the network. This also helps to ensure that we don’t break legitimate NBT-NS behavior. You can set the -r option via command line if you want to answer to the Workstation Service request name suffix.
