  • 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

  • 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...

  • IHttpRequestResponse.setMessage() does not update Proxy History automatically

    If I call setMessage on a IHttpRequestResponse instance, it does not update the Proxy History window automatically. However, if I force a redraw (for example by clicking on the item), the new comment appears, so it seems that the underlying object model gets updated by my call, it's just that it doesn't invalidate the already drawn view. I tried this with Burp Suite Pro v1.7.16 on Deb...

  • Passive Scanning of Active Scan Results

    In Extensions, do passive scan checks (implementing IScannerCheck.doPassiveScan) automatically get applied to all responses of active scans as well? Or is passive scanning only done for the initial request/response and ignored thereafter? If you want to run the same checks on active scan responses do you need to explicitly implement IScannerCheck.doActiveScan?

  • unexpected makeHttpRequest timeout value

    I'm using IHttpRequestResponse makeHttpRequest(IHttpService httpService, byte[] request) to send a modified request that I got from an IScanIssue. If the target host is down, I get a timeout (return == null) and it takes approximately 26 secs. I don't know how this 26s is calculated since my timeout values are: Normal 120 Open ended: 10 DNS resolution 300 Failed DNS resolution 6...
