Welcome back.
00:01
In less video, we did a quick or be off this module, and in this lesson we will cover how to use a tool. DNS twist. Actually, we'll try to find fishing sites based on our domain name. I will use my own domain name. I t know dot net as an example, which will will run the tool.
00:19
Here we are back in are a bunch of 20 virtual machine, which is already to run our domain example through Deanna's Twist.
00:27
As I have previously mentioned, the simplest and the most basic way to run to is to visit the directory, where the Ennis Twist is
00:35
just side note. Currently, you don't have to be in the tools directory to run it, but I won't bother you with that. Now
00:42
then type bison
00:45
three
00:46
space Dennis Twist That be why
00:50
space
00:53
and name off the target. The main you wish to test. As I have mentioned, I will use my own domain.
00:59
I t know
01:00
dot net.
01:02
So all time, Just that and breast center to start our first Dennis to his job
01:08
almost immediately, you will get a number of permutations displayed. The bigger the number the longer the wait.
01:15
Speaking from experience around 1600 permutations is not a big number. You will see a progress bar, and when it is done, the results will be displayed in the terminal.
01:26
Don't be impatient with the tool because it could take a lot of time to go through the whole permutations or or combinations off the domain name.
01:40
Okay, now we got our results. As you can see on the Left column,
01:45
there is a domain name attack name like replacement Transposition, while will slip a swap
01:52
and similar things which we mentioned previously in the course after that the domain name entry.
01:59
And after that, some additional lethal, like the I P address off the host and the name server entry.
02:07
Let's clear our screen
02:10
and go to the help section toe. Better. Fine tune our next Dennis name Investigation
02:15
type Bison
02:17
three
02:19
space. Deanna's twist
02:22
dot be Why and press enter.
02:24
Here's the help section with the list of arguments that you can use.
02:29
Most of them are self explanatory, like argument
02:32
minus A, which stands for show all the *** records than double minus G O I. P or minus G, which is used to look up the GOP location.
02:45
After that, minus are or minus minus registered to show Onley registered domain names.
02:52
This could be useful if you want to come up with a new domain name for your brand or business.
02:57
You can also check the who is information off a domain with the minus W or double minus Couey's argument. When I use the tool, I like to ride the results in a file, so I can you those results for my reports more efficiently.
03:13
Let's do our domain name search again, but with a few additional options included. Type
03:19
bison,
03:20
three
03:22
space, DNS. Twist that be why
03:24
space and the name of the domain
03:28
as before I will use I t know that net
03:32
space
03:34
minus G. Because I want to find out the geo information of the eyepiece displayed.
03:39
Then
03:42
space
03:43
minus are
03:45
to search only for the registered domain names
03:49
than space
03:52
minus. Oh,
03:53
and now type two file name for your file results. I will just type idea no
04:01
than space
04:03
double minus name servers.
04:06
Space 1.1 dot 1.1. This last argument with the Dina server tells Deanna's twist to query the particularly in a server at this moment from my location. It looks like that DNS is giving me the fastest results and finally, press enter to get till running its thing.
04:29
Wait for a while. The weight really depends on many factors from the state of the local net, for your virtual machine is on to the potential bugs in the software you may encounter
04:39
or not.
04:41
Now that the task is done, let's check out our results in the output file. We designated
04:48
file is created in the folder Dennis Twist,
04:51
and I named it ICTY. No,
04:56
As you can see in the file, we don't have that many results on Lee because I put the minus our argument, which told Vienna's twist to give me only the registered domains output.
05:08
But this results are detailed with lots of other information, like the eyepiece, geo information, name, servers and so forth.
05:18
I encourage you to check other options to and learn how to use the tools features that work best for your domain name investigation.
05:28
Once again, I have a cool quiz question for you.
05:30
Which DNS record would you test with the *** twist? Checked it targeted email Server
05:36
one and mixed record to see name record or three male record.
05:44
And
05:46
if your answer was one
05:47
a mix record, then you are correct. Congratulations. If this record is Miss Configured and I have encountered this kind of issue many times, then your e mails won't get to its destinations ever.
06:01
In this video, we went through the procedure off using Dennis Twist to find similar fishing sites based on our domain. I tina dot net and the next one will briefly touch on the online Web flavor of DNS twist.

DNSTwist Fundamentals

In this particular video course, we are going to show how to install and use a tool called DNSTWIST. This tool is probably used by the whole spectre of the Cybersecurity community, from the good guys to hackers and criminals.
