DNSTwist – Domain Phishing Enumeration

DNSTwist – A Look at Domain Phishing Enumeration

A few weeks ago, I happened to stumble upon a tool called DNSTwist. And, like every tool I ever encounter, I always like investigate more into a tools capabilities and what it can offer. After reading more about the tool through another blog I was reading at that time. I was pointed towards the official Github page for DNSTwist. The tool itself is great and something every company should at least look at on a yearly basis. Phishing attacks are on a rise, and the expectation is that they will continue to increase over time. So, I’ve decided to create a very quick tutorial on how to use DNSTwist, and what it can offer for anyone that wants to make use of it. This is a great tool for Pen Testers and Security Analysts!

What can DNSTwist do for me?

I found using this tool gave me great insight into major phishing attacks that could be conducted against users or companies. Now how is this a good thing? Well, if you know the type of attacks that can take place, or how a certain attack can take place. Then, you are better able to find ways to defend against this type of attack. At the minimum, you can at least detect this specific type of attack. In my experience there are more stats revealing that there is now a rise in phishing attacks against companies and users.

So how does this tool help me? (more…)

Teamviewer went down about a month ago which impacted every Teamviewer user on a global scale.
Many people at that time thought Teamviewer had been breached or hacked.

I was alerted about the issue through a friend the same day.
The twitter feed for teamviewer was hit hard by angry users. And as I started to noticed right away many businesses rely heavily on TeamViewer to run their day to day operations. (more…)
