Detection of outdated components

Harald Nandke Jun 20, 2018 06:15PM UTC

Dear all,
How can I know if a specific component is outdated and will be detected or not by BurpSuite? In specific I had a complaint from a customer, we did not detect that primefaces 5.x is vulnerable (CVE-2017-1000486).In burp-log I can see primefaces 5.x was in an server response. Does Retire.js help here?
Best regards and thanks in advance.

Hi Harald,

Thanks for your message. This is not something that core Burp does; the Scanner focuses on detecting novel application flaws such as SQL injection. Many security firms use a separate scanning tool for this purpose, such as Nessus. There are also a couple of extensions: Retire.JS that you mention and Software Vulnerability Scanner.

Please let us know if you need any further assistance.

For vulnerable components assessment, OWASP dependency check is an opensource scanner which might be helpful in this case.
