Burp Scanner’s live crawl path views have significantly improved, while GraphQL scan checks have received considerable attention.

Here below, we have summarized the newly added and updated features:-

Burp Scanner seamlessly incorporates these checks into its existing scanning routine, allowing you to optimize your scans and streamline your testing workflow with utmost efficiency.

  • Identify and maintain a list of any GraphQL endpoints discovered during the crawl.
  • Identify if introspection queries are enabled.

  • Test for CSRF vulnerabilities in all discovered GraphQL endpoints.
  • Live crawl paths view improvements: The crawler’s navigation actions from a specific location on the crawl path can now be viewed, aiding in understanding your site’s structure. Burp’s browser screenshot can be viewed at any crawl location, accessible through the Crawl paths tab in the scan task details window, while the shortest crawl path tree is enclosed when a project file is reopened.
