  • False positives in XSS findings

    Hello, I use Burp scanner regularly and I observed two issues with reflected XSS detection. 1. Sometimes, burp sends the XSS payloads without URL encoding and reports the reflection as XSS. However, all major browsers perform URL encoding of special characters like < , > and "space" when you enter the URL in address bar. So, when producing a PoC, the payload is encod...

  • Scan for .DS_Store files

    Check out this writeup: It would be cool if burp suite could automatically check for .DS_Store files on websites, parse the content, spider the files and check for more .DS_Store files in subfolders.

  • scroll with wheel in preview tab

    Currently scroll wheel doesn’t work for the preview tab of a response. It works for all the other tabs. Even better if we can scroll horizontally by holding Shift when scrolling. See for example.

  • Select/Deselect All Individual Issues in Scan Options Tab

    I appreciate that there's now the options to 'Select by scan type' and 'Select individual issues' under Scan Options, but selecting individual issues to scan for is a pain when there's no select/deselect all in the 'Enabled' column of the issues table. There's many instances when I'm retesting a specific finding on multiple URLs and want Burp to do...

  • Dynamic custom parameter name

    Hi, As per session management/macros, I know I can use "Define custom parameter" to obtain value to specific parameter with static name (e.g. "name"). However, consider a dynamic parameter name. For example, upon requesting the login page, I get "name1234" parameter (notice the counter/nonce appended to the name of the parameter). Upon requesting the login page again...

  • Custom Attributes on issues

    Add IssueAttributes[] to the IScanIssue object that would get exported with the xml report. Name/Value pairs would suffice, however, nested objects would be awesome. This new property would have to come with all the standard methods add/remove/edit. The use case for this would be so bapp’s could, for example, assign a score to an issue that could represent things like risk, likelihood, impact, ...

  • Add new request to outstanding Macro

    I'm using Macro editor quite often for anti CSRF tokens, as well as session management. However, when I would like to add a single request to the current macro, I need to re-record the entire macro again. Would it be possible to add a new button, simply "adding" new requests to the current macro without the need of re-recording the whole thing? Many thanks

  • Search through nested values

    Hi, I've posted a FR on Twitter ( which has been added to the dev backlog but I put it here too in case of... BurpSuite handles nested insertion points for the scanner which is great but it could be very handy to be able to make search through nested values (ex: to search a string which is encoded in base64). Thanks Davy

  • Add checkboxes for entries in "Platform Authentication"

    Hello, Authorization checks with Burp could be faster if it was possible to have multiple creds, with checkboxes, for a same host in Platform Authentication. You'd be able to do your tests using creds A then uncheck them and check creds B instead, do your tests, etc... Do you think you could add this ? Thanks Davy

  • extension to the intruder api

    Hi, I was wondering if you guys had any plans to bring an update to the burp-api, containing an extension of the api for the intruder? If not - it would be awesome if it were possible to use the intruders "request-firing", "response-storing", "grep-extract from response" feature via the extension-api calls. E.g.: I get use an api call to define and start an...
