This release adds a new scan check for external service interaction and out-of-band resource load via injected XML doctype tags containing entity parameters. Burp now sends payloads like:
<?xml version='1.0' standalone='no'?><!DOCTYPE foo [<!ENTITY % f5a30 SYSTEM "http://u1w9aaozql7z31394loost.burpcollaborator.net">%f5a30; ]>
and reports an appropriate issue based on any observed interactions (DNS or HTTP) that reach the Burp Collaborator server.
The release also fixes some issues:
- Some bugs affecting the saving and restoring of Burp state files.
- A bug in the Collaborator server where the auto-generated self-signed certificate does not use a wildcard prefix in the CN. This issue only affects private Collaborator server deployments where a custom SSL certificate has not been configured.
