loblo Posted August 25, 2020 Share Posted August 25, 2020 I was fed up with Burp systematically corrupting the registry lately so I'm now blocking the PortSwigger site by adding the following lines (not all might be necessary) to the Windows HOSTS file: 127.0.0.1 18.104.22.168 127.0.0.1 portswigger.net 127.0.0.1 www.portswigger.net The only downside is that the PortSwigger site can't be accessed anymore by any software (unless using a web proxy with a browser I guess). All the free extender entries in the Burp registry key can be deleted (saving about 1MB of registry space) and won't come back and neither will corruption. Burp help is embedded in the jar at Burp.jar\resources\Documentation\ and can be extracted for offline viewing. And something I forgot to mention about Burp is that you can make the jar file much smaller by deleting the x64 folders in the burpbrowser-binaries folder inside the jar, saves some significant disk space. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
