Extension bugs

Hi, Any tips for identifying extensions failing to meet Burp's level of quality? Right now I have java consuming all available CPU and looks like it's not going to recover. Considering how much extra work a crashed burp and losing results costs time for a busy consultant, the unofficial extensions do not justify the costs.. Is it possible for Burp to prevent an extension from killing it?

Hi Helen Thanks for your message. There isn’t an obvious way to pinpoint problematic extensions other than running Burp with one extension enabled at a time, and looking for problems. We do perform a cursory review of BApps, but this is mostly about ensuring they are not malicious, rather than identifying bugs or performance problems. Please let us know if you need any further assistance.
