Hi All, Need urgent help, We have a financial Application(xyz) and we are running burp suite for that. And After capturing the target site. i.e.. Login to application >> Navigating entire application links and navigation We right clicked and spider the host and then Actively Scan the Host. But we are getting continues alert for Suite, Spider and Scanner as "Authentication Failure from xyx.com". Could some one help me to solve this problem. Thanks, Rajiv Joshi

If you see entries in the alerts tab relating to authentication failures, then this indicates that platform authentication is required for some of the requests that Burp is making. - https://portswigger.net/burp/help/options_connections#platformauth Additionally, it might be worth installing the Flow extension to monitor the requests that are getting authentication errors. Please let us know if you need any further assistance.
