  • Java RE 6 Required?

    I am in my 14-day evaluation period of Burp Suite. Yesterday I attempted to test a site via https; Burp Suite would not perform the test using Java RE version 8. I had to downgrade to version 6 of the JRE ( a version chock full of security problems and no longer supported by Oracle). What is Portswigger's plan to correct this problem?

  • GUI hanging on Windows 8.1 64-bit?

    Hola, I've just set up a new install of Windows 8.1 64-bit (fully patched) with the latest (AFAIK) versions of Java and Burpsuite (running as "java -jar -Xmx4096m burpsuite_pro_v1.6.14.jar" from a command prompt with admin privs). I'm getting GUI hangs within Burp. It still appears to actually be passing traffic - but the GUI is completely non-responsive. I can browse to...

  • Temporary files not deleted upon exit

    I've been waiting since 5 versions ago for this to be fixed. We're now at 1.6.14 and the issue is still there: Burp does not delete its temporary files/folders upon exit and thus, on subsequent launch, it asks for temporary folders to be deleted. It's been reported since 1.6.09 and you guys are also aware about this issue since 1.6.08:

  • Discover content requests out-of-scope item

    In Target > Scope I've set "Exclude in scope" to be as follows: ^/auth/logout.* However, despite this "Content discovery" appears to request /auth/logout causing the discovery session to be logged out. A workaround could be to setup some Session Handling Rules for the Spider (?) to run a Macro to log back in, but should this be necessary?
