Burp Suite Crawling

Can Burp Suite’s Automatic Crawler cause a system to crash?

Probably not, but it does cause a lot of traffic. You are likely to get IP blocked.

Much appreciated waike.

Hi Lupus,

Like waike said, it’s not likely but ask yourself what might happen if your spider finds some resources that have some administrative functionality and lack sufficient controls to deal with the all the arbitrary requests you’re sending. You could potentially delete accounts and / or “redecorate” a site.

Better to passively spider and exercise care when mapping the application.

Much appreciated yabai.
