improve burp handling of http requests

Omar Mohammad Feb 24, 2017 03:33PM UTC


I will explain the idea by an example,

suppose this website " " points to two IPs ( & )

and these IPs has open port " 80 "

now we have 4 entry points to test

when the server is & port is 80

1- GET / HTTP/1.1

2- GET / HTTP/1.1

B) when the server is & port is 80

1- GET / HTTP/1.1

2- GET / HTTP/1.1

the problem is :

in the site map burp handles requests per server and considers point 1 & 2 as one instance

so in this scenario we could have only three instances in the site map

1- by visiting in the browser

2- by visiting in the browser

3- by visiting in the browser

so is virtual host will only point to one ip or
( in site map)
and we lost one entry point

If you want to test using the host header against each of the target IP addresses, then the best way to approach this would be with Burp’s hostname redirection feature (at Project options / Connections / Hostname resolution). If you set an entry to point this hostname at, and do your full normal testing, you can then change the entry to point at and repeat the testing.
