It seems to me you could do this without setting up a dns server. Just
tcpdump the traffic or sniff or snoop the traffic. It you set it up with
a snaplength of 1500 you'll get enough of the packet to see exactly what
dns query is being asked...something like
tcpdump -n -s 1500 udp and port 53 and host 126.96.36.199
then you'll be able to tell if the queries are all for one specific
domain (meaning something has that IP registered as an authoritative
server for that domain) or are the queries for many different domains
meaning people think you have a dns server they can use as a resolver.
As I already stated, they're coming from all over.
Same with issue number one, once you know the domain they are querying,
you can find the POC of that domain and get them to fix the problem.
Hopefully, it is one of these two issues. Good luck!
That's the one piece I don't have yet - what domain is being queried. Thus
the request for suggestions here.
