  • Fatal alert: handshake_failure for TLS1.2 enabled site

    Hey forum, I've got a problem where Burp is not able to proxy traffic to a certain domain due to SSL/TLS handshake failure. The site is configured to use TLS1.2 with a strong key exchange and key. This is from Chrome's Dev Tools: "The connection to this site is encrypted and authenticated using a strong protocol (TLS 1.2), a strong key exchange (ECDHE_RSA), and a strong cipher...

  • IMessageEditor.isMessageModified() does not detect modification

    I have an extension that uses IMessageEditor.isMessageModified() to determine when a user has modified a request. This works when a user explicitly types a change, however, it does not return true after a user has right-clicked the request and selected either "Change request method" or "Change body encoding" with no keyboard interaction.

  • Send to Decoder character limit

    Hi there Any reason Send to Decoder only transfers the first 10,000 characters? When I copy and paste, the whole lot comes over - granted, that's a different buffer, but given that Send to Repeater handles larger blocks, this seems like a bug. If it *is* necessary, a warning would be useful. Thanks Jerome

  • processProxyMessage doesn't take changes from processHttpMessage into account

    Hey guys, I am not sure if this is a bug or intended behavior but I wanted to let you know anyway. At work I recently made a small plugin that simply adds a custom header to outgoing requests by overriding processHttpMessage of IHttpListener. Obviously this doesn't show in the HTTP History tab but usually plugins like Logger++ log the request exactly as it hits the wire. In my partic...

  • SSL SNI not used with upstream proxy

    Hello, SSL SNI works properly on regular connections but not on connections through upstream http proxy. After getting Handshake_Failure alerts when using an upstream http proxy I've confirmed that the "Server_Name" extension is missing for SSL handshakes when an upstream proxy is enabled. Could you please confirm if it is a bug or should I check anything else? Det...

  • Burp Active Scanner Issue

    Hi, We have recently come across an issue with the active scanner. As soon as the scanner is launched with default settings , the load of the java process on the CPU increases exponentially and reaches 400% at which point burp scanner stops sending out requests (this is with less than 10 threads in the queue). I have also tried to reduce the number of concurrent threads to 1, the load on ...
