#4. GraphQL Raider:
GraphQL Raider is a plugin for BurpSuite that enables testing and manipulation of GraphQL endpoints. GraphQL is a query language for APIs that provides a more efficient, powerful, and flexible alternative to REST APIs. With the growing adoption of GraphQL, it has become increasingly important for security testers to have the ability to assess and identify vulnerabilities in GraphQL APIs. The GraphQL Raider plugin helps security testers to quickly identify and exploit vulnerabilities in GraphQL endpoints by allowing them to interact with GraphQL endpoints and manipulate the queries and responses. The plugin includes features such as a GraphQL query builder, automatic mutation discovery, and an interactive console for querying GraphQL endpoints. Security testers can use GraphQL Raider to test for common vulnerabilities such as SQL injection, blind injection, and authentication bypass. The plugin also provides functionality for fuzzing, mutation testing, and capturing and modifying requests and responses.
#5. Upload Scanner:
The Upload Scanner plugin in BurpSuite is a tool used to detect file upload vulnerabilities in web applications. It does this by analyzing file upload requests and responses for various types of file upload vulnerabilities, such as unrestricted file uploads or server-side code execution through file upload. The plugin has the ability to detect file upload vulnerabilities in various file types, including image files, PDFs, and even Office documents. It can also detect file upload vulnerabilities that are present in multipart/form-data requests. The Upload Scanner plugin can be a valuable tool in a penetration tester’s arsenal, as file upload vulnerabilities can be a common and critical vulnerability in web applications. By detecting and exploiting these vulnerabilities, an attacker could potentially upload malicious files to the server or execute arbitrary code, leading to a range of serious security issues. You can intercept an upload request and send it to Upload Scanner by Right-Clicking.
#5. 403 Bypasser:
The 403 Bypass plugin in BurpSuite is used to find vulnerabilities in web applications that may allow unauthorized access to resources that are otherwise forbidden by the server. The HTTP status code 403 indicates that the server understands the request but refuses to authorize it. The 403 Bypass plugin helps identify common techniques that attackers can use to bypass this restriction, such as directory traversal, header manipulation, and parameter manipulation. It can be used to test the security of web applications and ensure that they are properly configured to prevent unauthorized access to sensitive resources. You can intercept a request and send it to 403 Bypasser by Right-Clicking.
#6. NoSQLi Scanner:
The NoSQLi Scanner plugin in BurpSuite is designed to detect NoSQL injection vulnerabilities. NoSQL databases, such as MongoDB, are becoming more popular as web applications scale and require high performance. However, these databases can be vulnerable to injection attacks similar to SQL injection. The NoSQLi Scanner plugin automates the process of detecting potential NoSQL injection points and attempts to exploit them by injecting payloads into the target application. It is designed to work with different NoSQL databases and supports various injection techniques. By using this plugin, security testers can identify and report potential NoSQL injection vulnerabilities in web applications. This plugin may give many false positives, so be careful!
#7. SQLi Query Tampering:
SQL injection attacks are a common and dangerous type of web application vulnerability. They allow an attacker to execute malicious SQL statements against a target database, potentially compromising sensitive data or even taking control of the entire application. The SQLi Query Tampering plugin for Burp Suite is a powerful tool designed to detect and exploit SQL injection vulnerabilities in web applications. It works by modifying the SQL queries sent by the application to the backend database, injecting additional SQL code that can extract sensitive data or bypass authentication and authorization controls. This plugin includes a wide range of SQL injection attack vectors and techniques, including blind injection, error-based injection, time-based injection, and more. It also allows users to customize and create their own attack payloads, making it a versatile tool for any penetration testing or bug bounty engagement. Using the SQLi Query Tampering plugin can help security professionals identify and remediate SQL injection vulnerabilities in web applications, ultimately making the internet a safer place for everyone.
Co2 is a powerful plugin for BurpSuite that enhances its capabilities with various modules. However, it’s important to exercise caution when scanning untrusted sites as the SQLMapper component has had command injection flaws in the past. The extension has its own configuration tab with sub-tabs for each Co2 module, and modules that interact with other Burp tools can be disabled from within the Co2 configuration tab. This eliminates the need to disable the entire extension when using just part of the functionality. The following modules are included in Co2:
SQLMapper: This is a sqlmap helper that allows you to right-click on any request in Burp and send the request to SQLMapper. The SQLMapper screen will appear pre-populated with the URL, POST data (if applicable), and Cookies (if applicable) from the request. You can then set any other options you need and copy/paste the SQLMap command to sqlmap on your command line.
User Generator: This module uses publicly available census data from the US Census Bureau and popular baby names from the Social Security Administration to generate usernames based on statistical data. The interface allows you to customize the data sets and specify whether you want full names, initials, a delimiter between first and last names, and more. The tool will approximate which name combinations are the most common and sort the list accordingly. The result set is limited to the top 200,000 names to avoid performance issues.
Name Mangler: This module mangles names and domains to generate a list of potential usernames that can be used to test for valid logins.
CeWLer: This module is based on Digininja’s command-line CeWL script for extracting a wordlist from HTML files. The Co2 version works with a list of responses directly inside of Burp.
Masher: This module generates a fuzzy list of possible passwords using a seed list of words and a password specification. Masher combines words from the provided list, appends and replaces characters to build new passwords.
BasicAuther: This module takes a list of usernames and passwords and outputs proper BasicAuth strings that can be used in Intruder.
NOTE: You have to install sqlmap on your desktop and configure it’s path to this plugin. Install sqlpmap’s zip file (for windows, for linux you can download tar.gz file) > Head over to CO2 Plugin > Sqlmapper > Config > Select your sqlmap.py file and it will be ready.
