Hostname Resolution ignored if SOCKS Proxy in use

Daniel | Last updated: Dec 28, 2021 07:26PM UTC

Observed behavior: The Hostname Resolution section under Project options -> Connections is ignored if SOCKS Proxy is in use, with "Do DNS lookups over SOCKS proxy" enabled. Instead, Burp resolves the hostname via the SOCKS proxy. Expected behavior: The hostname resolution should have precedence over DNS resolution. For example, if someone is testing an internal host via a SOCKS proxy, and attacking a virtualhost that doesn't have proper internal DNS configured. Version: v2021.10.3

Any news? This is still not working when using (any) proxy.
