Sanning report issue

bappe sarker Dec 17, 2019 10:07AM UTC

When i attempt an automated scan in same target and same scanning configuration the report become difference between following situation, (a) scan without any pause or restart burp then the result is 10 issues [for example] (b) scan with few pauses and restart burp then the result is 9 issues.

It’s not clear why this difference in results might have occurred. How many times have you run this test? Are you able to reproduce this consistently? Which version of Burp are you using?

Are you able to manually verify the results of the scan? The actual impact and validity of any issue will always depend on the nature of the application functionality and the business context in which it appears. Hence, issues should always be manually reviewed based on the tester’s knowledge of the application.

Are you able to manually verify the results of the scan? Is this a legitimate issue tha Burp is missing? Is it possible that the issues are being consolidated?
