  • Opening and saving an Intruder attack saves nothing

    Steps to reproduce: 1. Open a previously saved Intruder attack using the "Intruder | Open saved attack" menu item in the main window. 2. Save the attack using the "Save | Attack" menu item. Expected results: Attack state is saved to disk. Actual results: File is created on disk, but with no content (valid ZIP file with an empty Intruder file within). Burp holds a lock...

  • Version burpsuite_pro_v1.7.15 (OSX) is crashing when trying to start

    While trying to start, the burp window opens but closes just after the screen refresh. It is strange because the JVM don't crash. The worst part is, I can not use the older version to reopen the project as now burps understand it was created for a newer version. Thanks

  • Viewing aspx extensions

    Hi, When using Burp Suite Pro I've come across a problem where the response tabs are unable to display the raw response from aspx file extensions. When copying the raw response into both classic Notepad and Notepad++ the raw response displays fine as HTML. Sending the response to the decoder also displays HTML - without using any of the encode or decode options. The proxy, intercept, i...

  • Cancelling a repeater request looses history

    In the repeater, if a request is timing out and it is cancelled then the history is lost, i.e. the arrows stop working and you can't see other requests. Done it for me a few times on current test so very repeatable.

  • Mouse events ignored in filter text boxes

    In some text inputs like the filters (by search term, by file extension: show/hide) in both the Target and Proxy tab seem to update the internals only when there's a keystroke event fired in them (the user either deletes or types some characters using the keyboard). This ignores mouse events, which in case of Burp means that people on Unix-like systems (tested on Linux/X11) can paste into the...

  • Java crypto policy files overwritten on upgrade

    I'm testing a site which requires the alternative Java crypto policy files, I put them in place but after a Burp upgrade they were put back to the original ones. Left me confused as to why I could no longer access the site. It would be nice to be able to place them somewhere and reference them rather than having them overwritten.

  • Cacheable responses

    HTTP, not just HTTPS responses obey the cache control headers, yes? So, shouldn't the finding for 'https://portswigger.net/KnowledgeBase/issues/Details/00700100_CacheableHTTPSresponse' be more generic. I noted in a recent test the burp does NOT catch these cache issues when HTTP is the protocol in use. I guess I'll research the standards more, but thought to ask for yo...

  • Burp not working correctly if WAF uses connection reset

    Hi, I am currently expecting a strange issue with Burp, which affects the active scanner. I have used the active scanner against a web application which is protected by some kind of WAF. The WAF works like this: if the request contains "alert(" (without quotes), then reset connection I have analysed the requests with the "Flow" extension and it looks like that a few XSS pa...

  • Missing Directory Listing vulnerability
