We love Burp Suite and we have since wayyyy back, the last update we posted was around 18 months ago back in January 2010 – Burp Suite v1.3 Released – Integrated Platform For Attacking Web Applications.
For the two people here who don’t know what this tool does, Burp Suite is an integrated platform for performing security testing of web applications. Its various tools work seamlessly together to support the entire testing process, from initial mapping and analysis of an application’s attack surface, through to finding and exploiting security vulnerabilities.
Burp gives you full control, letting you combine advanced manual techniques with state-of-the-art automation, to make your work faster, more effective, and more fun.
And now, we’re happy to announce there’s a new version out and it’s available for download now!
