One of the coolest new features released in the recent beta version of Burp Suite is the introduction of a REST API. I blogged about the UI and some other feature enhancements earlier this week. Today I want to talk a little bit about a command-line Ruby script that I’ve written to interface with this REST API called Burpcommander.
A lot of changes have been made with PortSwigger’s recent release of Burp Suite 2.0! You can see a complete list of all the new goodies by reading the release notes. In this article I’m going to cover just a few key highlights that I think are important. Keep in mind I just upgraded this morning and my experience, analysis and opinion is based on only a couple of hours playing around.

I often run into the same GPG errors while updating Kali Linux’s apt-get repositories.

A friend of mine recently asked if I could help them by recovering passwords from an old Windows laptop. Nothing nefarious here just a common scenario we’ve all been in before. They hadn’t used the system in quite some time and couldn’t recall the password to log in.
