Burp Mac

Here’s a quick tip I use to save some time when spinning up Burp Suite on a Mac. I use Burp Suite frequently enough that having an icon on my task bar is warranted. I also like to start Burp Suite with more memory allocated to the JVM than the default. To accomplish all of this, we will simply create an Automator workflow that runs Burp in a shell script.

After installing Homebrew, with an admin account you just have to open a Terminal and type the command: 'brew install burp' And BURP will be installed in the subdirectories of /usr/local (see Homebrew website to have the details of the subdirectories). If you prefer, you can just use Burp's embedded browser, which is preconfigured to work with Burp Proxy already. To access the embedded browser, go to the 'Proxy' 'Intercept' tab, and click 'Open Browser'. The process for installing Burp's CA certificate varies depending on which browser you are using.

I’m going to break this down step-by-step for those who are not familiar with Automator. Before I get started though I will mention that I originally “borrowed” this tip from James (Jardine) when I saw him using it… and then made my own improvements.

To start, open the Automator app, which is a standard application that should already be installed, and create a new automator ‘Application’ (that second icon on the ‘type of document’) prompt:

Download Burp Suite Professional Pro (archive) from the link below. Unzip and install the installer as usual. Run the application. Run keygen (if the antivirus has removed keygen, disable it before starting the installation) Copy the data generated by keygen in the program registration field.

To get Burp Suite up and running, you need to complete the following initial installation and configuration steps.

Next add the ‘Run Shell Script’ action, which can be found in the ‘Utilities’ library of actions:
Now you just need to replace the default text ‘cat’ with the right shell script. I typically run BurpSuite with 4GB of RAM, which means I will run Java with the following options:
java -Xmx4g -jar <jar filename>

What about that filename? Well that’s easy. If you have been installing Burp in the default location under /Applications, then it will simply be something like:

…where that version number is whatever the latest version is that you have installed. All you have to do is modify your automator script whenever you install a new version of Burp. But wait a minute… with all the power of Linux running on a modern processor there must be some way to have your Automator script find the most recent burp jar file for you, right? Of course there is! We will replace the filename with an instruction to list all burpsuite_pro files ordered by modified time and return just the first one. Now our final command looks like this:

java -Xmx4g -jar “$(ls -t /Applications/burpsuite* head -n1)”

Save it and test it. If all is working properly Burp should start up. There are a couple of quirks I will mention so that you know these are expected. First, because the automator script is calling Burp (which has its own window), you will see both the automator script icon and the Java icon as active apps on the task bar. Second, while the automator script is running you will see a small spinning gear on the bar at the top of the screen. Both of these are normal behavior.

The last step to polishing this solution off will be to change the icon of your new Automator app to one that is more meaningful. This entails finding an appropriate icon, opening the ‘info’ tab for your app, and pasting it in. I am not going to walk through those details here since others have already covered the task in detail (e.g. osxdaily shows us here).

Description: ASP.NET ViewState without MAC enabled

The ViewState is a mechanism built in to the ASP.NET platform for persisting elements of the user interface and other data across successive requests. The data to be persisted is serialized by the server and transmitted via a hidden form field. When it is posted back to the server, the ViewState parameter is deserialized and the data is retrieved.

By default, the serialized value is signed by the server to prevent tampering by the user; however, this behavior can be disabled by setting the Page.EnableViewStateMac property to false. If this is done, then an attacker can modify the contents of the ViewState and cause arbitrary data to be deserialized and processed by the server. If the ViewState contains any items that are critical to the server's processing of the request, then this may result in a security exposure.

The contents of the deserialized ViewState should be reviewed to determine whether it contains any critical items that can be manipulated to attack the application.

Remediation: ASP.NET ViewState without MAC enabled

There is no good reason to disable the default ASP.NET behavior in which the ViewState is signed to prevent tampering. To ensure that this occurs, you should set the Page.EnableViewStateMac property to true on any pages where the ViewState is not currently signed.
