Burp extension: extract CSRF tokens from responses of selected Burp tools and update them with a custom session handling rule.
from burp import (IBurpExtender, IBurpExtenderCallbacks, ISessionHandlingAction, IHttpListener)
import re
class BurpExtender(IBurpExtender, ISessionHandlingAction, IHttpListener):
def registerExtenderCallbacks(self, callbacks):
self.callbacks = callbacks
self.helpers = callbacks.getHelpers()
callbacks.setExtensionName("Session CSRF Token Handling")
self.out = callbacks.getStdout()
# CONFIG: find token in tools defined by this bitmask, constants defined in IBurpExtenderCallback
self.findTools = 0xffffffff
# CONFIG: this RE matches the CSRF token
self.reFindToken = re.compile("^<script>var csrfToken=\"(.*?)\"", re.MULTILINE)
# CONFIG: Replacement RE with prefix and suffix capture groups
self.reReplaceToken = re.compile("(CSRFToken=).*?(&)")
self.token = None
def log(self, msg):
self.out.write(msg + "\n")
### IHttpListener ###
