Burp Intruder Bruteforcing too slowly

Hello | Last updated: Feb 08, 2016 06:10PM UTC

Hi, I see that Burp Intruder is bruteforcing at the rate of 1-5 seconds per request. This means that in a minute I can do roughly 12-60 requests. This seems to be way too slow, is there any way to speed up bruteforcing? Best regards

Are you using free edition of Burp? The Intruder in the free edition is a demo version that is time throttled, as per the dialog that shows when you launch an attack. The version in the Pro edition has no restrictions and is blinding fast given sufficient resources.

Ic. For the free version how many seconds is the throttling for Intruder?

The Intruder in the free edition gradually slows down.

After it has reached the bottom speed, how many seconds does one request take then?

I think trial and error is your friend if you really need this information.

Intruder in the free edition is slow.

Burb Suite free edition runs about 1 intruder attempt per second, after a minute it drops to about 1 per five seconds and after 150 attempts, it runs at 1 per 15 second. What I'd like to find out is how fast the paid version runs at, it's not cheap and I really don't want to pay for something that will be slow.
