  • How do I highlight requests in a custom ITextEditor?

    I am writing a extension that adds a IMessageEditorTab to each request that displays a modified HTTP body. The base of the code is very similar to https://github.com/PortSwigger/example-custom-editor-tab/blob/master/java/BurpExtender.java. How do I get the ITextEditor to colorize the HTTP request the way it does in the raw tab?

  • SAXParser Dependency Delimma

    Hi guys, I'm in the process of writing a Burp extension in Python, and one of the dependency libraries makes use of the "xml.etree.cElementTree" module to parse XML markup. The problem is that any call to the "xml.etree.cElementTree.parse" function causes Jython to raise the following exception "java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.apache.xerces.parsers.SAXPars...

    Is there a way to override ActiveScan checks or the order of checks so a custom check is run last? I'm trying to detect a certain type of XSS attack in our application where we're using Selenium to detect if javascript actually executes or not. I'm trying to find a way to keep my custom attack in all the fields long enough to run the selenium checks. Either by putting it at the e...

  • IContextMenuInvocation - getSelectedMessage of original request / response

    Hi I have added a custom context menu item, which reads the selected text of the currently open request / response. So far so good, however in the history view of Burp, when i have three tabs, i can only differentiate between Edited Request and Response. This means if the user has the Original Request Tab open and uses the context menu, the Edited Request text is returned from ihrr.getRequest...

  • Custom Hotkey for Burp Extension

    Dear Portswigger Team, Is it possible to register a hot key for an action provided by an extension? My use case is the following: I have created a new behaviour for "Send to Intruder" (default ctrl+i) and for this purpose added a new context menu item. Ideally, this menu action could be invoked by a custom hot key, e.g., ctrl+shift+i. Cheers, Franz
