Burp Suite extensions

Users can contribute with extensions to aid in the discovery of vulnerabilities. Be aware of false- positives and use your pentesting capabilities to ensure you fully explore the findings.

Param Miner

Allows high-performance identifying of unlinked parameters. Check for unlinked GET and Headers, and unlinked POST when applicable.

Backslash Powered Scanner

Will give alerts on interesting transformations of data or other interesting things. Often, it will be false- positives, but it allows the penetration tester to focus on potential vulnerabilities.
Software Vulnerability scanner
Checks software version numbers against for vulnerabilities.

Turbo Intruder

Python scriptable interface where one can achieve custom functionality and very high speeds of HTTP requests through http pipelining.


Quickly add and monitor Burp collaborator interactions.

Burp Suite REST API

The REST API can be enabled in user options. It will by default be enabled on It supports interaction via web-application too, not just CLI. Below is a list of endpoints via their URL and the respective CURL command to use them. The API can be especially useful when you need to send a consolidated list of URLs from a different tool to the scan engine, or perhaps use Burp Suite in headless mode. To open Burp Suite in headless mode run it with the following arguments:

java -jar -Xmx4g -Djava.awt.headless=true/path/to/burp.jar

Get a list of defined issues:

http://localhost:1337/knowledge_base/issue_definitions curl -vgw "\n" -X GET ''

Scan a URL with the Active Scanner (vulnerability scanner):

http://localhost:1337/scan curl -vgw "\n" -X POST '' -d '{"urls":["http://target.tgt/scanTarget1","http://target.tgt/scanTarget2"]}'

Check the status and progress of a given scan:

http://localhost:1337/scan/task_id curl -vgw "\n" -X GET ''
