Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone could provide me with the *basic* theory behind spoofing hostname while on IRC.


bubba @ dhcp-0009.someisp.com - normal
bubba @ runs.from.the.cops.com - spoofed

*I think* (please correct/add/subtract) it involves a personal (or hacked) DNS server and a valid domain name. When the IRC requests the information from the DNS server, it simply dumps fake information which in turn is processed as legit information.

Hiya whichway, welcome aboard.

I'm afraid it sounds like whoever you've been listening to has been feeding you bullshit.

You are way off track.

It's totally legal and if some using a host like that has told you some shit like that they are lying and trying to look like they h4x0red a name server *cough bullshit*

Basically they are just using a BNC (bouncer) or PsyBNC (known sometimes as datapipes) which means you connect to IRC via another machine, therefore IRC shows the host you connect to rather than your own.

To get a funky name like i.spank.the.ircops.com you just buy a shell (about $5 a month nowdays) and use that.

BNC info found here: http://bnc.ircadmin.net/

PsyBNC here: http://www.netknowledgebase.com/tutorials/psybnc.html

The funky names are known as vhosts (virtual hosts) and are a subdomain, I used to use shaolin.ownz.joo.info, l33t eh?

Here are some companies vhost lists:



You can find their prices on the pages.

Ive seen someone on irc using a nice owned BT subdomain, which was quite a good one,
