Burpsuite livelocks in splashscreen without error message

Jean-Pierre Höhmann Apr 15, 2017 03:07PM UTC

In a fresh install of Kali Linux on a Raspberry Pi 2 Burpsuite will lock up on the Splashscreen.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Flash Kali Linux to an SD-Card.
2. Install and boot.
3. Run the following commands:
# apt update
# apt full-upgrade
# apt autoremove
# apt install kali-linux-web
# java -jar /usr/bin/burpsuite -Xmx1024m
4. Observe Failure

Expected result:
Burpsuite starts and accepts connections

Observed result:
Burpsuite's splash screen appears and shows indefinitely, with one CPU core constantly maxed out and no command line output.

Hi Jean-Pierre

Thanks for your message.

We’ve just updated Kali and ran Burp Suite using this command:

  1. java -jar /usr/bin/burpsuite

Burp Suite started and ran as expected. Have you tried launching Burp without adding -Xmx1024m?
