Intruder File Payload Generator

This extension provides a way to use file contents and filenames as Intruder payloads.


  • Load the extension. A new tab called PayloadTab should appear.
  • In the PayloadTab, choose the payload folder. The extension reads all files recursively and lists them.
  • In the payloads tab of the Intruder tool:
    • At Payload Sets -> Payload Type, select Extension-generated.
    • At Payload Options, select File as Payload or Filename as Payload.
      • If you just need to use the file contents as payload, select File as Payload.
      • If you need both the content and filename then choose Pitchfork as the Attack type and use File as Payload for one Payload set and Filename as Payload for the other.
    • At Payloads -> Payload Encoding, disable the "URL-encode these characters" option (specially for multipart POST requests).

Requires Java version 7.
