Burp Suite, the leading toolkit for web application security testing

Generate CSRF PoC

[Pro version] This function can be used to generate a proof-of-concept (PoC) cross-site request forgery (CSRF) attack for a given request.

To access this function, select a URL or HTTP request anywhere within Burp, and choose "Generate CSRF PoC" within "Engagement tools" in the context menu.

When you execute this function, Burp shows the full request you selected in the top panel, and the generated CSRF HTML in the lower panel. The HTML uses a form and/or JavaScript to generate the required request in the browser.

You can edit the request manually, and click the "Regenerate" button to regenerate the CSRF HTML based on the updated request.

You can test the effectiveness of the generated PoC in your browser, using the "Test in browser" button. When you select this option, Burp gives you a unique URL that you can paste into your browser (configured to use the current instance of Burp as its proxy). The resulting browser request is served by Burp with the currently displayed HTML, and you can then determine whether the PoC is effective by monitoring the resulting request(s) that are made through the Proxy.

Some points should be noted regarding CSRF techniques:

v1.6.11

This release adds a new Scanner check for path-relative style sheet import (PRSSI) vulnerabilities.

These issues are not widely understood by security testers or application developers, and real vulnerabilities are quite prevalent in the wild. The impact of the vulnerability is in many cases serious, and equivalent to cross-site scripting (XSS).
