CloudFrunt

CloudFrunt is a tool for identifying misconfigured CloudFront domains.

Background

CloudFront is a Content Delivery Network (CDN) provided by Amazon Web Services (AWS). CloudFront users create "distributions" that serve content from specific sources (an S3 bucket, for example).

Each CloudFront distribution has a unique endpoint for users to point their DNS records to (ex. d111111abcdef8.cloudfront.net). All of the domains using a specific distribution need to be listed in the "Alternate Domain Names (CNAMEs)" field in the options for that distribution.

When a CloudFront endpoint receives a request, it does NOT automatically serve content from the corresponding distribution. Instead, CloudFront uses the HOST header of the request to determine which distribution to use. This means two things:

  1. If the HOST header does not match an entry in the "Alternate Domain Names (CNAMEs)" field of the intended distribution, the request will fail.

  2. Any other distribution that contains the specific domain in the HOST header will receive the request and respond to it normally.

This is what allows the domains to be hijacked. There are many cases where a CloudFront user fails to list all the necessary domains that might be received in the HOST header. For example:

  • The domain "test.disloops.com" is a CNAME record that points to "disloops.com".
  • The "disloops.com" domain is set up to use a CloudFront distribution.
  • Because "test.disloops.com" was not added to the "Alternate Domain Names (CNAMEs)" field for the distribution, requests to "test.disloops.com" will fail.
  • Another user can create a CloudFront distribution and add "test.disloops.com" to the "Alternate Domain Names (CNAMEs)" field to hijack the domain.

This means that the unique endpoint that CloudFront binds to a single distribution is effectively meaningless. A request to one specific CloudFront subdomain is not limited to the distribution it is associated with.

Installation

$ git clone --recursive https://github.com/MindPointGroup/cloudfrunt
$ pip install -r requirements.txt

CloudFrunt expects the dnsrecon script to be cloned into a subdirectory called dnsrecon.

Usage

cloudfrunt.py [-h] [-l TARGET_FILE] [-d DOMAINS] [-o ORIGIN] [-i ORIGIN_ID] [-s] [-N]

-h, --help                      Show this message and exit
-s, --save                      Save the results to results.txt
-N, --no-dns                    Do not use dnsrecon to expand scope
-l, --target-file TARGET_FILE   File containing a list of domains (one per line)
-d, --domains DOMAINS           Comma-separated list of domains to scan
-o, --origin ORIGIN             Add vulnerable domains to new distributions with this origin
-i, --origin-id ORIGIN_ID       The origin ID to use with new distributions

Example

$ python cloudfrunt.py -o cloudfrunt.com.s3-website-us-east-1.amazonaws.com -i S3-cloudfrunt -l list.txt
