Millions of dns-queries

dns

#1

Hello,
we see Millions of DNS-Queries on our Firewall from our Domaincontroller and its Backup.

I really don´t think this is a normal behaviour.

All outbound DNS-Traffic is blocked. Only our internal Servers are allowed.
There are only internal DNS-Servers configured on our Domaincontrollers.

Sorry for the following long Output, but this does not even show one Second. (The Ips 161 and 217 are the UCS Servers)

Any hints are very apreciated.

Thank you!

Hey,

first you should probably check which addresses they’re trying to resolve. Run something like tcpdump -n -i any udp port 53 on your DC Master. That should output lines such as this:

16:23:51.108824 IP 192.168.191.3.51819 > 192.168.191.253.53: 27749+ A? client.teamviewer.com. (39)
16:23:51.108834 IP 192.168.191.3.52531 > 192.168.191.253.53: 18683+ AAAA? client.teamviewer.com. (39)

Which host names/records are requested over and over again?

Kind regards,
mosu

Hey,

well, this means that some application is trying to resolve the address bounce-thomas-krenn.xortex.at over and over again. I assume that 192.168.0.217 is the address of the machine you were running tcpdump on, right (the DC Mater or DC Backup)? So what happens is:

An application running on the host 192.168.0.120 sends a DNS request to the DNS server running on your DC Master querying bounce-thomas-krenn.xortex.at.

The DNS server on your DC Master doesn’t know the answer and forwards a DNS server on the internal host 192.168.0.246. That one then says “well, I don’t know…”.

As your DC Master doesn’t know the answer yet, it now contacts three external DNS servers and asks them.

Basically you’ll have to figure out which application on 192.168.0.120 triggers those queries in the first place. Everything else is just a result of 192.168.0.120 asking for that record.

Kind regards,
mosu

Hey mosu,

thank you very much for this great explanation!

The host 0.120 is a W2008r2 Domaincontroller for a foreign Domain. We have no idea why it started to talk with the Univention-controller. The DNS-service on the Windows Controller was running with high-cpu. A restart of its DNS-Service immediately stopped this traffic.

What i still do not understand why and where does my Univention Domaincontroller know three external DNS-Servers. I took more than on look into my Registry and i can not figure out why this happens. The only external DNS which is configured is the one running on our Firewall.

Kind regards,
Matthias
