This release introduces a brand new feature: Burp Collaborator.
Burp Collaborator is an external service that Burp can use to help discover many kinds of vulnerabilities, and has the potential to revolutionize web security testing. In the coming months, we will be adding many exciting new capabilities to Burp, based on the Collaborator technology.
This release is officially beta due to the introduction of some new types of Scanner checks, and the reliance on a new service infrastructure. However, we have tested the new capabilities thoroughly and are not aware of any stability issues.
This release fixes some issues with yesterday’s beta release of the new Burp Collaborator feature, including a bug that may cause Burp to sometimes send some Collaborator-related test payloads even if the user has disabled use of the Collaborator feature.
This release is still officially beta while we monitor the Burp Collaborator capabilities for any further issues.
