  • Bug in Search Windows using openJDK

    Hello dear portswigger team, I have an issue using the Engagement Tools -> Search options. Some times after entering the search word a suggestion window will be created as separate jwindow objects (grey box and white box with digit 1 on the screenshot) and will not be killed after the search windows is closed.

  • Burp cant handle same-name cookies set to different paths

    Just chiming in to add another vote for fixing cookie jar handling for cookies with the same name but differing paths. In my case, two different sessionId cookies at root (/) and one at a subdirectory (/service/). Both are necessary for the call. Repeater seems to be adding the first one it encounters in the cookie jar.

  • V1.7.17 and v1.7.16 Issues in Target Tab

    When you run active scan and look at the scan queue, 2 issues found and I come back to the target tab and click on the target and don't see any issues listed in the issues box. In the previous versions this wasn't a problem. A bug probably? Thanks! Iswarya

  • 'SSL Pass Through' traffic is incorrectly forwarded through an upstream proxy

    When the SSL Pass Through function is used in combination with an upstream proxy server proxy, the proxy is used incorrectly, causing the proxy to deny TLS connections that are passed through. Expected behaviour would be that Burp performs a CONNECT request to the proxy server, providing it with the target host; after receiving a 200 response, it can proceed forwarding the TLS messages to the p...

  • Text highlighted ... in black

    Suddenly today, when I click in any Burp window that shows text, the text gets "highlighted" in black. And it's black text. So I can't see anything. If I open a different tool in Burp, and then come back, the view is restored, but only until I click in it. Then it goes black again. Screenshot from fresh Burp Project where I only browsed to Portswigger:
