  • Scan of Oracle 12c E-Business Suite Application Consumes all Database Processe within a few minutes

    Old database processes are not released and remain in the system for an hour or more forcing a database re-start. Number of database processes at 1.2K. Is this a Burp thing (i.e. is there a Burp Prof setting to prevent this)? or is this something with the Oracle DB settings (if so which and how can we fix it)? Thanks

  • Resume a crashed burp session

    I just tested (scanned) a larger web shop in a maintenance window during last nicht. On my /tmp i had 30 g free, which was not sufficient. So burp crashed. Since there are a lot of tests and results documented in the /tmp/burpxxx directory: How can I resume, or at least restore the state? That would be tremendious helpful. Thanks.

  • "No response received from remote server"

    After I make a few requests to the web server, I received an error "No response received from remote server" in browser. The alerts tab also shows the same error message. I saw a solution which is to resolve by reloading CA Cert. Is this means to regenerate CA cert from Burp, export it and install in web browser? Are there any other solution which works?
