Static Analysis with Burp Suite

I’m so far behind the times, it’s sad. Burp Suite gained the ability to perform static analysis on JavaScript libraries back in 2014. Some sites and authors have already blogged about what their approach is for implementing this.I’d like to echo Lukas’s method, but with an easier setup.

Simply navigate to the local directory containing the app and serve it using Python’s built-in HTTP server.

  • python2 syntax: python -m SimpleHTTPServer <port>
  • python3 syntax: python3 -m http.server <port>

Navigate to the served content in your browser with burp proxy configured and spider/scan the site as usual - static analysis results will appear in the scan results pane.
