  • Repeater - Quick toggle cookie jar usage

    It is a common use case to want repeater to use the current cookie from the cookie jar. However sometime you want to make sure session authentication is working properly, so you intentionally want to use an old cookie. It is currently tedious to have to switch to session tab and dig into the options to toggle it for repeater. Would be nice to have the ability to toggle this option on a per ...

  • Prevent Burp Proxy from recording some items based on the scope or other filter (e.g. regex)

    Hi, I'm looking for a way to prevent Burp from recording some item in the Proxy history. The main reason is that I'm intercepting quite a lot of traffic from the intercepted device, which quickly increases Burp's memory and CPU usage. This finally triggers the "Failed to allocate memory - behavior may be unstable, consider saving your work" error and forces me to restar...

  • Auto Highlighting

    Would be great to auto-highlighting based on a regex match. Specifically would be great to use this for visually separating sessions if we could match a by cookie header.

  • How can I get XML view of a response that is in utf-16?

    Hi, I don't have a convenient way to view responses with bodies that are XML encoded in utf-16. I think handling this would involve a coding change, but if there's a configuration I've overlooked, please let me know. What happens when I look at a response whose body is XML encoded in utf-16 is that the RAW tab of the Response shows the headers normally, but then shows the XML ...

  • Remove tabs no used and save tabs order

    Hi Portswigger team, every time I open Burp I have to reorder the tabs (Repeater, Proxy, etc) as I wish, the order is not saved. And I would like to be able to remove the tabs that I don't use like Spider, Target and Scanner. Thanks.

  • Support CWE ID in reports

    Like other professionals, we use CWE for classify vulnerabilities. In our case we try to use several tools and correlate vulnerabilities in this way. Thank to that we can create custom reports using our description of vulnerabilities, and if we need to deliver reports in other language, we can keep our translations.

  • automatically color communications by listener

    During pentest of some apps it's very handy to login as multiple users for testing interactivity issues and other things. I just setup multiple listeners to make that easy. It would be super helpful if you could assign a default color to be automatically applied to all communications of a specific listener. Thanks for a great product! Larry Craddock Ultimate Software

  • Referer strip for CSRF PoC generator

    Hello, Certain sites check the Referer HTTP header for CSRF protection, but accept request without Referer in order to avoid breaking functionality. One general method to strip the Referer header is to use a <meta name="referrer" content="never"> so in a PoC, it is something like this: <html> <meta name="referrer" content="never"> ...

  • exponential backoff in Sequencer

    When testing session tokens, usually the same request is sent over and over again to the server. Often this causes a considerable amount of load (as tests are usually made on test/quality/integration systems with lower hardware resources). The result is usually temporary availability issues. Most of the times, just pausing live capture for a few seconds, and them resume solves the problem. That be...

  • Scan Queue / Scan Next - Order

    When there are hundreds or even thousands of pages to scan it it isn't always the best use of time to attempt to weed out and try to select which items to scan or determine which ones are nearly identical except a parameter or two and exclude them through the active scanning wizard; especially when available testing time is an issue. I think it is easier to send the whole lot to the scan...
