  • Burp automation encountered error: Attempting to auto-select SSL parameters

    Hi: I built an extension and it is working fine to login, select scope, spider and do active scan. The scan takes a few hours. On windows setting, the scan can finish in 2 and half hour. On linux machine, however, it failed in the middle of the scan: what should I change on the Burp setting? It is the same server Burp is scanning. The difference is Linux Burp and Windows Burp. Thanks...

  • Burp CSJ

    When I attempt to use this extension using Firefox as the browser, an instance of Firefox shows pops up, hangs around for a while showing no activity, then I get an 'Exception Breakpoint' from Firefox and that's all she wrote.

I'm trying to scan a request that creates an entry in a database, and the request includes the name of the new entry. The problem is, when running the request through the scanner, it will use the same name each time, and after the first request will result in an error message like...

  • burp command line

    Hi, I would like to bring up BURP using command line (without any GUI) for automation. Is there a way to bring it up without a project file? If I do not specify the project file on the command line, it will bring up GUI which I do not want to see. java -jar -Djava.awt.headless=true -Xmx1g burpsuite_file.jar --config-file=file1 --config-file=file2 Thanks

  • registerSessionHandlingAction throwing errors

    Whenever I try to load callbacks.registerSessionHandlingAction(self) I get errors. I've seen other posts which are similar to mine, where Dafydd is able to run the extension without errors.

Here is my code: from burp import IBurpExtender ...

  • auto scan pre-populated site map

    Hi, I have built a site map for a host that I am interested. I would like to scan this site map automatically (without spidering it before scanning) I am thinking to build an extender that will do following: (1) start burp with extension loaded and site map loaded (2) get pre-populated site map, for each url, send to active scan (3) start active scan for those urls (4) generate scan rep...
