Burp Extension Loading hangs

random_tester Jul 18, 2018 09:13AM UTC

I'm trying to load some Burp extensions (Java/Jython), but the load hangs without any error or log messages.
I'm using the latest version of Burp Pro 1.7.35, the extensions I'm trying to load are:
HUNT scanner
HUNT methodology
show insertion points

The interesting point is that the HUNT extensions work with an older version of Burp Pro (1.7.21), but not the others. I also tried with Burp Pro 1.7.18 with the same results.

Is there a backward incompatibility issue with the extension system of Burp Pro?

Are you seeing a “Failed to verify BApp file” message message in the bottom right section of the BApp store tab?

We’ve tested Hunt Scanner and Methodology with 1.7.35 successfully. Are you loading the extensions via the Extender > Extensions > Burp Extensions > Add function?

Excuse me, the problem solved itself.
I just had to wait an hour for the extension to load. Later the load was not that slow.
I don't know the reasons though.
