Advanced Target Scope - Load File

Frank | Last updated: Jan 19, 2021 08:47PM UTC

Hey all, I normally used regex in advanced scope to make sure I capture all sub domains. However, I have a list of over 100 I'd like to check. I created a TXT file of the domains with regex but when I go to Load the file nothing happens. No error, not results. Any ideas? Thanks in advance. Frank

Hi Frank, You need to load the URLs without any regex in them. Can you give this a try? E.g. https://www.google.com https://portswigger-labs.net https://example.com

That does work for me. However, I was hoping to make things a bit easier for myself. My understanding is if I want to add all subdomains in scope I would need to call them all out in the scope or use regex to capture them.

Thanks for that information. This sounds like it could be a feature request for the 'Load' option to respect any regex set within the file being uploaded. If possible, can you send the file or an example to us on support@portswigger.net?

Will do! Thanks for the help.

What is the status of the feature of adding lists of URIs with regex?

basically what would be nice is if there is a flat file with the following entries: ----------- example.com *.example.com/* test.net/path/here/* www.test.net/* ----------- Would make the following scopes for both http and https: ----------- example\.com .*\.example\.com\/* test\.net\/path\/here\/* www\.test\.net\/* -----------

Hi Neil, You should see this very soon! I cannot provide a specific date but our developers have completed the work for it.

You can now load files into the target scope with URLs containing regex. - https://portswigger.net/burp/releases#professional

Hi! Pasting a full URIs with regex doesn't behave the way I want it to. For example, say I want to put the second-level and all subdomains with a specific path in scope: https://*.example.com/full/path the regex would likely look like this: https:\/\/(.*\.|)example\.com:443\/full\/path\/ However, this doesn't work. If I add the following manually, it does work: protocol: Any Host or IP range: (.*\.|)example\.com Path: \/full\/path\/ Can this be fixed?

Sorry, I meant loading a file with full URIs... not pasting doesn't seem to work.

Hi Neil,

Your regex is invalid. I would suggest testing it with a site like https://regex101.com/.

Correctly escaped, your example should look like this:

Can you give that a try and let me know if you have any issues?
