DNS aggregation over TLS


In a previous post, I tried different solutions for tunnelling DNS over TLS. One of those solutions was using a dedicated DNS-over-UDP fake service replying to all queries with the truncate flag set: this was causing the stub resolvers to retry the query using a TCP-based virtual-circuit. This solution is interesting because it is dead simple (it fits in a few line of codes) but it is clearly a hack. Here, I'm using a dedicated DNS forwarder aggregating all the incoming DNS-over-UDP requests over a single persistent TCP virtual-circuit.

Debugging use-after-free with RR reverse execution


RR is a very useful tool for debugging. It can record the execution of a program and then replay the exact same execution at will inside a debugger. One very useful extra power available since 4.0 is the support for efficient reverse execution which can be used to find the root cause of a bug in your program by rewinding time. In this example, we reverse-execute a program from a case of use-after-free in order to find where the block of memory was freed.
