  • 2.0.09beta - Cookie Jar does not update with scanner

    The cookie jar does not appear to update with cookies received during active scans. The project options were configured to update the cookie jar from both the proxy and scanner. The proxy was working as expected, however no updates were occurring when a scan was running. The application being scanned updates the cookie upon each request therefore updates should have been occurring constantly. ...

  • Projects randomly stop collecting target information.

    During class last week, every student at one point or another encountered an issue where Burp stopped collecting information in the target tab while the proxy history continued to collect information. Restarting Burp did not fix the issue. We were using 2.08b. I had a few students upgrade to 2.09b. The old projects still didn't work in the new version, and after restarting Burp with a new pro...

  • Releases page is missing TLS certificate

    I've noticed missing cert when I got redirected to http://releases.portswigger.net/2018/10/professional-2009beta.html after downloading new release. Do you really intentionally show people checksums of downloads from http page?

  • Client certificate does not seem to work with the newest burp, but one earlier version it does.

    Yesterday I had version v2.0.07beta and I put in user options, ssl a client certificate with password ( pfx with p12 extension name ). I was able to test using this setup, this morning I updated to 2.0.08beta and it did not work anymore. Tried various times adding certificate. I ended in using the previous version v2.0.07beta and it worked directly.
