Error Message Checks Extension for Burp Suite

This Burp Suite plugin passively detects detailed server eror messages, even during scanning, spidering, etc. It is written completely in Java and takes advantage of the Burp 1.5.x Extender API.

Often detailed error messages may not be visible during the normal course of testing. Some examples are:

  • Java: "[SEVERE] at net.minecraft.server.World.tickEntities("
  • ASP.Net: "System.Web.UI.Page.ProcessRequestMain(Boolean includeStagesBeforeAsyncPoint) +2071"
  • PHP: "c() called at [/tmp/include.php:10]"
  • Perl: "Use of uninitialized value in string eq at /Library/Perl/5.8.6/WWW/ line 695"

The extension includes checks for error messages produced by: 

  • Java
  • ASP.Net
  • PHP
  • Perl
  • Python
  • Ruby (regex donated by James Kettle)
  • MySQL
  • MS SQL Server
