Thanks for your message Rizwan. Which version of Burp are you using? Have you updated to the latest version?

downgrading the java version solved this for me (was using 11)

chucho santos Nov 10, 2018 07:19PM UTC
I'm using java 10 and still don't working

chucho santos Nov 10, 2018 07:27PM UTC
You were right, use this in linux and choose the right version

sudo update-alternatives --config java

sudo update-alternatives --config javac

sudo update-alternatives --config javaws

Use 10 version of java

Liam Tai-Hogan Nov 12, 2018 03:14PM UTC Support Center agent

Thanks for the update Chucho.

Noman Riffat Nov 18, 2018 05:21AM UTC
After downgrading java as explained above by Liam Tai-Hogan, restart burp to make it work

Noman Riffat Nov 18, 2018 05:22AM UTC
Sorry by chucho santos I mean :)

alt3kx Nov 22, 2018 10:53AM UTC
FYI latest Java upgrade on my Linux box same error appears, my fix just downgrade the JAVA version or run the following command and start BurpSuite Professional v2.0.12beta

# update-alternatives --config java
There are 4 choices for the alternative java (providing /usr/bin/java).

Selection Path Priority Status
0 /usr/lib/jvm/java-11-openjdk-amd64/bin/java 1111 auto mode
1 /usr/lib/jvm/java-10-openjdk-amd64/bin/java 1101 manual mode
2 /usr/lib/jvm/java-11-openjdk-amd64/bin/java 1111 manual mode
3 /usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk-amd64/jre/bin/java 1081 manual mode
4 /usr/lib/jvm/java-9-openjdk-amd64/bin/java 1091 manual mode
Press <enter> to keep the current choice[*], or type selection number:

#/usr/lib/jvm/java-10-openjdk-amd64/bin/java -Xms16 -Xms4G -XX:MaxPermSize=1024M -jar burpsuite_pro_v2.0.12beta.jar &

Downgrading java to 10 works ...."kali OS"

RB Dec 21, 2018 09:37PM UTC
in the current kali repos there is not java 10 version of jre. is there a way to fix this issue without adding jav10? I would really like to avoid any additional repositories atm.

Liam Tai-Hogan Dec 24, 2018 12:08PM UTC Support Center agent

Have you tried using the platform installer version of Burp Suite?

Bayani Elogada Dec 29, 2018 07:27PM UTC
@RB, as of December 30, 2018, the one from the Kali Linux repo seems to have it. You simply have to reconfig it using

~# update-alternatives --config java
~# update-alternatives --config javac
~# update-alternatives --config javaws

and select the right version. as mentioned by @chucho above. It seems to have worked for me so far. However, outside of that, I also add test.currentTimeOffsetSeconds to 11491200 (as an integer) in about:config, so if that one fails, the Firefox configuration might help too.

Liam Tai-Hogan Dec 31, 2018 09:59AM UTC Support Center agent

Thanks for the additional information Bayani.

Bayani Elogada Dec 31, 2018 08:41PM UTC
Perhaps referencing this thread might also be useful for that other thread about Burp refusing HSTS. I got this problem mainly because I had HSTS problems that I tried fixing. After tweaking Firefox, I reached OP's error trace, but reverting to JRE 10 fixed both the HSTS problem and OP's problem for me.

douglas Jan 31, 2019 07:17PM UTC
i had exactly the same problem as mentioned above . i downgraded to java 10 and it now works . thank you . Running latest version of burp as well

Liam Tai-Hogan Feb 01, 2019 09:12AM UTC Support Center agent

Thanks for the update Douglas.

Ashutosh Verma Feb 13, 2019 06:17PM UTC
Downgrading java to version 10 worked for me too

Eric Feb 21, 2019 05:20AM UTC
Hey all,

Thanks for the help for this issue. I actually had to revert back to Kali 2018.4 to get it to work properly, since K 2019.1 only offers Java 8 and 11. I'm sure it'll be fixed soon enough!

John Feb 24, 2019 02:32PM UTC
Just to add if you are on the latest Kali which doesn't offer V10, downgrading to V8 also works

Elliot Feb 24, 2019 06:50PM UTC
how do you downgrade to v8 on kali?

apurv Feb 25, 2019 07:27PM UTC
This problem occur in kali 2019.1 and this kali use java 11.

Solve: run this command in terminal

"sudo update-alternatives --config java"

Then you choose selection 2 : /usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk-amd64/jre/bin/java

That means you choose java 8

Mirnes Alic Mar 18, 2019 08:08AM UTC
apurv recipe worked just fine. I selected java 10 jdk, it was fine. Running kali 2019.1
