Burp Suite in proxy mode is able to decrypt HTTPS traffic of any systems which trust it. It does this by generating an own certificate and use this cert to register itself as a certificate authority on the system it is installed on. When it then proxies a request to a HTTPS webserver, it does the HTTPS handshake itself, decrypts the traffic, issues a ...
Number one rule of penetration testing: don't do it on things that don't belong to you. Yes, it is merely a spider. However, people think wget is a scary hacker tool and the US govt. actually used that in a case. I appreciate that you rectified your mistake, and I think that reflects well on you. You have a few options here, depending on your moral beliefs:
There are a lot of free tools out there. You may not find a free tool with the exact same functionality as Burp, but you could use several tools to compensate for the limitations of Burp's free version.
use Owasp ZAP or Webscarab for their proxy functionality.
use Nikto and W3AF to scan web applications.
use SQLMap to exploit SQL injections vulnerabilities.
If none of these solutions work for you, like they didn't work for me, you could try to change value network.proxy.allow_hijacking_localhost to true (using firefox v 67.0.1 64-bit).
Open new tab, type about:config in address bar, then type network.proxy.allow_hijacking_localhost and double click it to change its default value to true.
It is true that both tools are in the same space. Burp is a commercial closed source tool (which can be extended) developed by a commercial company while ZAP is a free open source tool developed by the community.
Both have relative strengths and weaknesses, but as the ZAP project lead I'll let others enumerate those as I'm kind of biased.

The response of the server reply is Brotli encoded:
I think that the Burp Suite doesn't decode this, so you're seeing the compressed version of your response.
For more information about Brotli you can look here.
Until the Burp Suite supports Brotli, you can override the Accept-Encoding-Header as a workaround. Go to Proxy -&...
In Burp go to Proxy / Options / Proxy listeners, and confirm the Running box is ticked.
In proxy tab make sure intercept is turned off.
Make sure the proxy in burp listener is 127.0.0.1:6666.
Configure your browser to use 127.0.0.1:6666 as its proxy.
Configure Burp to use your original LAN proxy (from your original browser configs) as its upstream proxy.
Burp can use an upstream proxy server. You would set up your browser to use your burp instance (usually localhost:8080), and in Burp's options, you can set your company's proxy server (say: proxy.company.com:8080). All traffic will pass through your company's server, after it has been handled using Burp.
To help auditing both internal (intranet) and ...
Burp is an intercepting Proxy, which lets you inspect and modify traffic between your browser and the target application. Burp is actually serving it's own certificate so that you can see what's inside the request. Normally you will have accepted a security warning for a certificate issued by Portswigger, this is the certificate generate by Burp.
If you ...

If you are just looking to intercept WebViews, then the Frida extension, appmon (which allows for API interception), using these techniques will work well -- https://youtu.be/...
With HSTS, the browser will automatically convert HTTP links to HTTPS links. However, to prevent mistakes and abuse, browsers will only accept the HSTS header on a secured page.
As it relates to your case, HSTS will not allow users to manually accept a self-signed certificate once HSTS has been enabled (which can only be done from a secure page). That ...

If it's returning 200 on both an unauthorized page (302 Redirects to 200 login page), and an authorized page (discovered authorized page), there are some things you can do:
You can look for what happens on a successful login. Make a fake account, log in. See what does not get included on the real page, and what doesn'...
shell.php.jpg should be treated as a .jpg file
You're exploring DVWA, so not every should be means is. If I had to guess, the upload script properly checks the extension of the file and allows it, but the webserver doesn't check it the same way and allows execution.
You can learn more by exploring web server's (nginx or apache) config files, look for a ...
BurpSuite is only used to send HTTP requests in an automated way. There is no way to tell if a request is coming from BurpSuite or not. (Just have a look at your request header or body).
You might be able to detect such a robot though. Tools such as BurpSuite use a scanner, and you can trap them by making them follow an invisible link on your website. Tools ...
BurpSuite will not intercept server responses by default and display them to you.
To enable this functionality go to:
Proxy -> Options -> Intercept Server Responses
And make sure to check the box next to
Intercept responses based on the following rules
Then either select one of the displayed rules or add one like the highlighted one below:

https://xrmtfgxgjkzw.com is just an example generated by Burp. What it is in fact saying is that any website on the internet that the user is visiting can grab content from your site (possibly private to a user) if they are also logged into it.
Scenario is as follows:
Bob logs into your site, example.com.
Bob gets an email from the attacker saying he can ...
First thing to remember is that Burp is a HTTP(S) proxy. It doesn't do anything about any data which isn't HTTP(S) (OK, except websockets). Android apps, on the other hand, can use any protocol they want. Lots do use HTTP(S), just because it suits the type of data they're sending, but it's not actually required.
Where an app isn't using HTTP(S), that ...
There is a sample extension to do this. Here is the description:
This extension demonstrates how to redirect outgoing HTTP requests from one host to another. This task might arise, for example, if you have mapped out an application which then moves to a different staging URL. By simply redirecting traffic to the new hostname, you can continue to drive your ...
These are your options:
http://burp - it failed for you for some reason
http://localhost:8080/ - or your burp proxy address and port

Q: Why did HSTS allow me to override?
A: HSTS is A TOFU (Trust-on-first-use) mechanism. And that means: if you're intercepted that first time, you're screwed.
And since (as Austin pointed out) the includeSubDomains header is incorrect on the parent domain your user agent knew nothing about the subdomains.
And the TLS setup is in a lower layer than the HTTP ...
setAttribute() is safe in that it does nothing more than setting the attribute's value. Even by using special characters in the string you cannot inject an additional attribute (as you attempted in your third snippet), let alone escape the HTML tag.
Some attributes are dangerous for some elements. As you demonstrated, on* attributes are vulnerable because ...
Try adding a '.' after "localhost". This should solve your problem.
This will force the localhost to use the same proxy settings as one would with an internet connection/adapter
It's not a vulnerability.
Since the page transmits the password via HTTPS, it's encrypted before being sent on the network.
You allowed Burp to decrypt any encrypted traffic by adding their certificate into your trusted certificates store: that's the only reason why Burp is able to perform a man-in-the-middle attack and see the password in plaintext format....
Use the PROXIES environment variable (while in msfconsole) :
set PROXIES HTTP:127.0.0.1:8080
Or run Metalsploit with proxychains (config at /etc/proxychains.conf) http://proxychains.sourceforge.net
Notice that using burp is not helpful to inspect protocols other than http.
Burp supports Macros and Session Handling Rules that are designed to cope with this kind of situation. For example, you can configure a macro that fetches a fresh token, and a rule that updates the current request. This can be used with all Burp tools, including Intruder and Scanner. There's some more information here.
The built-in rules cannot update ...
You may want to ask the reporter to explain what they think the security implications are.
Tricking the browser into showing a successful login via a locally forged API response does no harm unless the user can use that to actually bypass authentication or access confidential information. An attack would have to trick the server into assuming the ...
