False Positive "Content type incorrectly stated"

Mithujan | Last updated: Apr 22, 2022 08:32AM UTC

Hello, It seems that Burp doesn't recognize ttf font and keeps flagging it with Content type incorrectly stated. Is it possible to solve this problem please? Any ticket already created? Thank you for your help. Mithujan

Hi Mithujan, We do have an existing ticket to look at how the 'Content type incorrectly stated' vulnerability is being handled, particularly in situations where font files are involved. I will add your interest to this existing ticket so that our developers can continue to accurately monitor the demand for this.

Hi Mithujan, We just wanted to let you know that the recent 2023.7 release should now resolve this issue. Burp Scanner should no longer erroneously report a 'Content Type Incorrectly Stated' issue when scanning font files, or content types that Burp does not recognize.
