Text4Shell scanner for Burp Suite
Detailed description can be found in our blog post about this plugin.
Note about detection capabilities: this plugin will only supply the built-in active scanner with payloads, thus for optimal coverage vs. performance, you’ll have to configure your scan properly – just as with any other built-in or extension-provided scan.
If you’d like to scan only for CVE-2022-42889 (and not other things such as XSS or SQLi), this plugin makes it possible.
By following the instructions below, the scanner will only perform Text4Shell checks on all insertion points if the scan configuration created as a result is used.
- When creating a new scan, click
Select from libraryon the
Audit checks - extensions onlywhich is built into Burp Suite Pro 2.x
- Disable every other extension (if applicable) that have an active scan check registered (such as ActiveScan++, Backslash powered scanning, Burp Bounty, etc.) so that only the Text4Shell scanner runs
./gradlew build and you’ll have the plugin ready in
