HUNT: HUNT Burp Suite Extension
HUNT Burp Suite Extension
HUNT is a Burp Suite extension to:
- Identify common parameters vulnerable to certain vulnerability classes.
- Organize testing methodologies inside of Burp Suite.
HUNT Scanner (hunt_scanner.py)
This extension does not test these parameters but rather alerts on them so that a bug hunter can test them manually (thoroughly). For each class of vulnerability, Bugcrowd has identified common parameters or functions associated with that vulnerability class. We also provide curated resources in the issue description to do thorough manual testing of these vulnerability classes.
HUNT Methodology (hunt_methodology.py)
This extension allows testers to send requests and responses to a Burp tab called “HUNT Methodology”. This tab contains a tree on the left side that is a visual representation of your testing methodology. By sending request/responses here testers can organize or attest to having done manual testing in that section of the application or having completed a certain methodology step.
Getting Started with HUNT
- First ensure you have the latest standalone Jython JAR set up under “Extender” -> “Options”.
- Add HUNT via “Extender” -> “Extensions”.
- HUNT Scanner will begin to run across traffic that flows through the proxy.
Important to note, HUNT Scanner leverages the passive scanning API. Here are the conditions under which passive scan checks are run:
- First request of an active scan
- Proxy requests
- Any time “Do a passive scan” is selected from the context menu
Passive scans are not run on the following:
- On every active scan response
- On Repeater responses
- On Intruder responses
- On Sequencer responses
- On Spider responses
Instead, the standard workflow would be to set your scope, run Burp Spider from Target tab, then right-click “Passively scan selected items”.
