Burp Suite v1.1 Available for Download


One of our favourite all time tools for attacking web applications has been updated! Burp Suite has now reached version 1.1! This is a major release – not a minor upgrade.

Burp Suite is an integrated platform for attacking web applications. It contains all of the Burp tools with numerous interfaces between them designed to facilitate and speed up the process of attacking an application. All tools share the same robust framework for handling HTTP requests, authentication, downstream proxies, logging, alerting and extensibility.

Burp Suite allows you to combine manual and automated techniques to enumerate, analyse, attack and exploit web applications. The various Burp tools work together effectively to share information and allow findings identified within one tool to form the basis of an attack using another.

Key features unique to Burp Suite include:

  • Ability to “passively” spider an application in a non-intrusive manner, with all requests originating from the user’s browser.
  • One-click transfer of interesting requests between tools, e.g. from the Burp Proxy request history, or the Burp Spider results tree.
  • Detailed analysis and rendering of requests and responses.
  • Extensibility via the IBurpExtender interface, which allows third-party code to extend the functionality of Burp Suite. Data processed by one tool can be used in arbitrary ways to affect the behaviour and results of other tools.
  • Centrally configured settings for downstream proxies, web and proxy authentication, and logging.
  • Tools can run in a single tabbed window, or be detached in individual windows.
  • All tool and suite configuration is optionally persistent across program loads.
  • Runs in both Linux and Windows.

New features in version 1.1 include:

  • Improved analysis of HTTP requests and responses wherever they appear, with browser-quality HTML and media rendering.
  • Burp Sequencer, a new tool for analysing session token randomness.
  • Burp Decoder, a new tool for performing manual and intelligent decoding and encoding of application data.
  • Burp Comparer, a new utility for performing a visual diff of any two data items.
  • Support for custom client and server SSL certificates.
  • Ability to follow 3xx redirects in Burp Intruder and Repeater attacks.
  • Improved interception and match-and-replace rules in Burp Proxy.
  • A “lean mode”, for users who prefer less functionality and a smaller resource footprint.

New Sophisticated Botnets Discovered


It seems like botnets are getting more sophisticated – we thought the Storm Worm was pretty hot, but some of these new contenders are showing the guys on the dark side has some advanced understanding of technology and the architecture many companies use…this enables them to get deeper inside and remain undetected

Researchers have unearthed two previously undetected botnets that exhibit sophisticated new capabilities that could significantly advance the dark art of cyber crime.

One of them, dubbed MayDay by security firm Damballa, uses new ways to send and receive instructions to infected machines. One communication method uses standard HTTP that is sent through an organization’s web proxy. That allows the malware to circumvent a common security measure employed by many large companies.

Indeed, Tripp Cox, vice president of engineering and operations at Damballa, says he’s observed MayDay running inside some of the world’s most elite organizations, including Fortune 50 companies, educational institutions and ISPs. (He declines to identify them by name.)

It seems like the numbers are nowhere near as high as Storm, but with this advanced technology it might be hard to count. This new worm spends a minimal time connected to the control channel to ensure it avoids detection.

Some big (and important) companies have fallen victim to this, so they could be getting hold of some seriously juicy info.

The botnet also uses two separate peer-to-peer technologies so zombies can stay in touch with each other, presumably as a back-up measure in case the central channel is disconnected. One protocol communicates using the internet control message protocol (ICMP) and the other uses the transmission control protocol. The ICMP traffic is obfuscated so it’s indecipherable to the human eye. Damballa researchers are still working to figure out exactly what kind of information is being transported over the channel.

Up until now, the zombie army popularly known as Storm has been the 800-pound gorilla of the botnet underground. Having recently marked it’s one-year birthday, it is believed to comprise about 85,000 infected machines. It was responsible for about 20 percent of the world’s spam over the past six months, according to MessageLabs, which provides email and web filtering services to more than 16,000 business customers.

I would guess however the aim of these newer more sophisticated botnets is not for spamming, they should have something more nefarious in mind. Perhaps extortion, insider trading or even terrorism.

Who knows?
