    • Bruteforcing non-indexed data is often used to discover hidden files and directories which can lead to information disclosure, or even a system compromise when a backup file is found. This bruteforce technique is still useful today, but the current tools aren’t stealthy, lack application context, and do not integrate smart behaviour to reduce the bruteforce scanning time. BurpSmartBuster, a new Burp Suite plugin, offers to include the application context, putting the Smart into the Buster! Watch presentation
