UUID issues for Burp Suite
When faced with the problem of identifying entities, many solutions depend on UUIDs or GUIDs. However, although being unique doesn’t necessarily make these identifiers unguessable.
This plugin performs a quick analysis on every request sent as part of passive scanning, so no additional traffic is generated. The plugin has no UI of its own, and aside from adding it to Burp, there’s no additional configuration necessary, it just works.
In case of UUIDs above version 2, it just adds an information-level issue. However in case of version 1 and 2, a medium severity issue is added, along with the information that can be extracted from the UUID itself.
