  • Auto-marking parameters in URL paths in intruder

    The swurg extension allows parsing swagger json files into items in burp that can be then sent to intruder, repeater, or scanner. However, swagger json files allow for parameters inside URL paths. There seems to be no way to construct a URL path that can be auto-marked in the intruder tab.

  • Binding proxy on custom port programmatically

    In my extension i want to accept all requests on custom port (for example 1337). There is no actual server on my computer, just another tool in the Internet, which would send there requests. I thought about proxy listener, but didnt find, how to bind proxy on port inside my extension. Maybe there is a better way to do it (catch all requests on port 1337 programmatically)?

  • 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 have never had much luck with CSJ but this is a new low :(. Is there an update / fix for this condition, or a better Ajax crawler (preferably with Burp)? Th...

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
