Burp Suite Cookbook

By: Sunny Wear

Overview of this book

Burp Suite is a Java-based platform for testing the security of your web applications, and has been adopted widely by professional enterprise testers. The Burp Suite Cookbook contains recipes to tackle challenges in determining and exploring vulnerabilities in web applications. You will learn how to uncover security flaws with various test cases for complex environments. After you have configured Burp for your environment, you will use Burp tools such as Spider, Scanner, Intruder, Repeater, and Decoder, among others, to resolve specific problems faced by pentesters. You will also explore working with various modes of Burp and then perform operations on the web. Toward the end, you will cover recipes that target specific test scenarios and resolve them using best practices. By the end of the book, you will be up and running with deploying Burp for securing web applications.

Using Burp Collaborator to determine SSRF

SSRF is a vulnerability that allows an attacker to force applications to make unauthorized requests on the attacker's behalf. These requests can be as simple as DNS queries or as maniacal as commands from an attacker-controlled server.

In this recipe, we will use Burp Collaborator to check open ports available for SSRF requests, and then use Intruder to determine whether the application will perform DNS queries to the public Burp Collaborator server through an SSRF vulnerability.

Getting ready

Using the OWASP Mutillidae II DNS lookup page, let's determine whether the application has an SSRF vulnerability.
