comment How can I block a subdomain with dnsmasq?
It is unfortunate that this received the bounty automatically, even though it didn't answer the question.

That's exactly what I did after I tried host-record and cname. Worked like a charm! As for why host-record works for you, are you sure you're adding a subdomain of an already whitelisted domain? (btw edit your answer and I'll give you the bounty.)

Neither of these work. cname because There are significant limitations on the target; it must be a DNS name which is known to dnsmasq from /etc/hosts (or additional hosts files), from DHCP, from --interface-name or from another --cname. If the target does not satisfy this criteria, the whole cname is ignored. (man) I'm not sure why host-record doesn't work.

Editing clients' host files in this case is not possible/practical. How could the server be circumvented by an end user or a malicious attacker? As for using iptables/netfilter, I've looked into that in the past and the problem has always been using domain names in firewall rules - which are resolved at start up and subject to change. I do have an iptables rule to drop DNS queries though.

Ah, I forgot to mention. I have an iptables rule to drop DNS queries.

"I could go to my /etc/hosts file and fix the issue." You'd have to get the IP address first, which you wouldn't be able to on this network.

What do you mean by bad-employee-trying-to-use-linux-but-we-impose-windows vibe that cygwin gives?
