Say hello to Logger !!
Good news for Early Adopters. The new 2021.4 release has a native Logger, which allows you to view HTTP traffic of all Burp tools (including Burp Scanner). As PortSwigger mentions, Logger is optimized for performance and limits the memory used.

So, should you chuck Logger++ / Flow extension and use Burp’s inbuilt Logger?
If you are a Burp user who uses the above extensions to see HTTP traffic alone, then yes.
However, the inbuilt logger has some downsides. 
  • You can’t search the messages in the Community version. Like that in Burp Proxy, the logger search functionality is only available in the Professional version.
  • You can’t have a log filter or grep values like the Logger++ extension.
  • You can’t see WebSockets requests in Logger even though it’s inbuilt in Burp.

The embedded browser remembers what sites you visited last time!
The embedded Chromium browser now saves your history, browser extensions, and any other changes to browser settings. 
This feature can be handy when you use browser extensions (like Wappalyzer, Shodan, etc.) in most of your pentest engagements.
If you want the embedded browser not to remember the past, head over to User Options -> Misc -> Embedded Browser and untick the “Allow the proxy embedded browser to store settings and history” option.

HackBar, Payload Bucket by Abdul Wahab
HackBar extension is now available in the BApp store. 🎉
This extension helps pentesters to speed up their manual testing. It contains payloads (from the PayloadsAllTheThings GitHub repository) for vulnerabilities like SQLi, XSS, LFI, and more.
Once you have the HTTP request in the Repeater tab, right-click on a param and select a HackBar’s payload depending on the vulnerability type you are testing for.
You can read more about HackBar here.

Will Portswigger store my user info if I use Burp’s default Collaborator server?
This is a question I always had. Finally, Burp Suite’s Twitter account said it out loud and clear: “We do not track our users’ activity in any way.”

Burp Suite + MacBooks with Apple M1 chip = Bad Performance
Burp Suite doesn’t seem to work fine on new MacBooks with Apple M1 chip. Burp Suite support team acknowledges that even when running Burp under Rosetta, Burp barely performs.

Update Burp Suite!!
If you are still using #BurpSuite 2020.11.3 or a lower version, it’s time to upgrade to v2021.2!! PortSwigger has patched an HTML Injection bug that can disclose netNTLM hash or cause DoS.
