Someone at the BruCON conference told me that curl has a better option to handle the issues I talked about in my diary entry “Downloading Samples From Takendown Domains“.

It’s the –resolve option (more solutions can be found in “Name resolve tricks“).

One uses that option like this: –resolve hostname:port:ip_address
