VMWare NATD Silent TTL Overwrite

Submitted by abb on Mon, 11/29/2010 - 13:31

Bloody (excuse my French) VMware NAT daemon silently overwrites TTL of DNS records! It sets TTL of 0-TTL records it proxies to 5 seconds. Right, normally it is not something to complain about. But it suddenly becomes a big deal if you are busy checking how different browsers respond to DNS rebinding attack... Uhhrr...

Apparently I'm not the first one who has noticed this, somebody else http://communities.vmware.com/thread/236511 had the same experience with Fusion.
