UFONet – DDoS Botnet via Web Abuse

UFONet – is a free software tool designed to test DDoS attacks against a target using ‘Open Redirect’ vectors on third party web applications like botnet.

It abuses OSI Layer 7-HTTP to create/manage ‘zombies’ and to conduct different attacks using; GET/POST, multi-threading, proxies, origin spoofing methods, cache evasion techniques, etc.

  UFONet runs on many platforms.  It requires Python (2.x.y) and the following libraries:

       python-pycurl – Python bindings to libcurl
       python-geoip  – Python bindings for the GeoIP IP-to-country resolver library

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

       sudo apt-get install python-pycurl python-geoip

Attacking a target:

  Enter a target to attack with a number of rounds:

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

On this example UFONet will attacks the target a number of 10 times for each ‘zombie’. That means that if you have a list of 1.000 ‘zombies’ it will launch 1.000 ‘zombies’ x 10 rounds = 10.000 requests to the target.


Special attacks:

UFONet uses different ways to exploit ‘Open Redirect’ vulnerabilities. For example: You can use UFONet to stress database on target by requesting random valid strings like search queries:

     ./ufonet -a http://target.com –db “search.php?q=”
