BApp details: Image Location Scanner

Image Location Scanner

Passively scans for GPS location exposure in images during normal security assessments of websites via a Burp plug-in. Image Location Scanner assists in situations where end users may post profile images and possibly give away their home location, e.g. a dating site or children's chatroom.

More information on this topic, including a whitepaper based on a real-world site audit given as a presentation at the New Jersey chapter of the OWASP organization, can be found at

This software finds the GPS information inside of Exif tags, IPTC codes, and proprietary Panasonic/Lumix codes. Then, this scanner flags the findings in the Burp Scanner as an information message. It would be up to the auditor to determine if location exposure is truly a security risk based on context.

Usage Requirements

  • Burp Pro 1.4 or newer
  • Java 1.6 or newer

Sample Run

Configure the web browser to proxy through Burp and then browse to a few sample sites:
