java.io.IOException: Unicode String

Dear, I'm getting inconsistent results, and I'm afraid Burp is the cause. When I modify a request in the repeater window , the following error is shown. java.io.IOException: Unicode String at sun.awt.datatransfer.DataTransferer.translateTransferable(DataTransferer.java:1120) at sun.awt.datatransfer.DataTransferer$5.run(DataTransferer.java:2306) at java.awt.event.InvocationEvent.dispatch(InvocationEvent.java:311) at java.awt.EventQueue.dispatchEventImpl(EventQueue.java:744) at java.awt.EventQueue.access$400(EventQueue.java:97) at java.awt.EventQueue$3.run(EventQueue.java:697) at java.awt.EventQueue$3.run(EventQueue.java:691) at java.security.AccessController.doPrivileged(Native Method) at java.security.ProtectionDomain$1.doIntersectionPrivilege(ProtectionDomain.java:75) at java.awt.EventQueue.dispatchEvent(EventQueue.java:714) at java.awt.EventDispatchThread.pumpOneEventForFilters(EventDispatchThread.java:201) at java.awt.EventDispatchThread.pumpEventsForFilter(EventDispatchThread.java:116) at java.awt.EventDispatchThread.pumpEventsForFilter(EventDispatchThread.java:109) at java.awt.WaitDispatchSupport$2.run(WaitDispatchSupport.java:184) at java.awt.WaitDispatchSupport$4.run(WaitDispatchSupport.java:229) at java.awt.WaitDispatchSupport$4.run(WaitDispatchSupport.java:227) at java.security.AccessController.doPrivileged(Native Method) at java.awt.WaitDispatchSupport.enter(WaitDispatchSupport.java:227) at java.awt.Dialog.show(Dialog.java:1084) at javax.swing.JOptionPane.showOptionDialog(JOptionPane.java:869) at burp.h1e.run(Unknown Source) at burp.ghe.a(Unknown Source) at burp.ghe.b(Unknown Source) at burp.ghe.a(Unknown Source) at burp.kh.b(Unknown Source) at burp.kh.windowClosing(Unknown Source) at java.awt.AWTEventMulticaster.windowClosing(AWTEventMulticaster.java:349) at java.awt.AWTEventMulticaster.windowClosing(AWTEventMulticaster.java:349) at java.awt.Window.processWindowEvent(Window.java:2058) at javax.swing.JFrame.processWindowEvent(JFrame.java:297) at java.awt.Window.processEvent(Window.java:2017) at java.awt.Component.dispatchEventImpl(Component.java:4881) at java.awt.Container.dispatchEventImpl(Container.java:2292) at java.awt.Window.dispatchEventImpl(Window.java:2739) at java.awt.Component.dispatchEvent(Component.java:4703) at java.awt.EventQueue.dispatchEventImpl(EventQueue.java:746) at java.awt.EventQueue.access$400(EventQueue.java:97) at java.awt.EventQueue$3.run(EventQueue.java:697) at java.awt.EventQueue$3.run(EventQueue.java:691) at java.security.AccessController.doPrivileged(Native Method) at java.security.ProtectionDomain$1.doIntersectionPrivilege(ProtectionDomain.java:75) at java.security.ProtectionDomain$1.doIntersectionPrivilege(ProtectionDomain.java:86) at java.awt.EventQueue$4.run(EventQueue.java:719) at java.awt.EventQueue$4.run(EventQueue.java:717) at java.security.AccessController.doPrivileged(Native Method) at java.security.ProtectionDomain$1.doIntersectionPrivilege(ProtectionDomain.java:75) at java.awt.EventQueue.dispatchEvent(EventQueue.java:716) at java.awt.EventDispatchThread.pumpOneEventForFilters(EventDispatchThread.java:201) at java.awt.EventDispatchThread.pumpEventsForFilter(EventDispatchThread.java:116) at java.awt.EventDispatchThread.pumpEventsForHierarchy(EventDispatchThread.java:105) at java.awt.EventDispatchThread.pumpEvents(EventDispatchThread.java:101) at java.awt.EventDispatchThread.pumpEvents(EventDispatchThread.java:93) at java.awt.EventDispatchThread.run(EventDispatchThread.java:82) I've tried to create a "anonomous" POC , but some strange behaviours - I tried to remove all addons , but they reappear each time -

'm using Kali OS. (32 bit) first had this behaviour using /opt/jdk1.8.0_25/bin/java , Saved the state , and reloaded burp using /usr/lib/jvm/java-7-openjdk-i386/jre/bin/java. When I delete a cookie in the repeater , the error is listed again

Thanks for this report. What action are you performing when this error occurs? And what problem occurs with Burp's observable behavior (other than the error output)? Also, what version of Burp are you using? Any further detail you can provide will help us diagnose and understand the problem - thanks.

Dear , You may put this issue on hold , since I suspect it has something to do with the locale setting of Kali. - Although even then I find it strange.. I'll see whether I can reproduce the issue on a freshly validated install of Kali and provide feedback. KR Dirk
