Kali ARM64 | Apple M1 Parallels | Embedded Browser Not Found

who | Last updated: Sep 08, 2021 11:37PM UTC

Hey folks, I've been struggling with the following issue when attempting to start the burpsuite embedded browser. I've tried across fresh installs on Kali and various burpsuite jar versions going back to when the embedded browser was first introduced. Tested the embedded-browser health check tool always fails. chmoding and chowning the chrome.elf, etc, and all the suggestions I found while googling. Here are the logs that appear after about a min of clicking both embedded-browser button open options in Proxy > Intercepts tab: # Aborting checks due to errors. Unable to start browser: /home/kali/.BurpSuite/burpbrowser/91.0.4472.101/chrome: 1: ELF: not found /home/kali/.BurpSuite/burpbrowser/91.0.4472.101/chrome: 2: ��P: not found /home/kali/.BurpSuite/burpbrowser/91.0.4472.101/chrome: 3: ��P: not found /home/kali/.BurpSuite/burpbrowser/91.0.4472.101/chrome: 4: ��h: not found /home/kali/.BurpSuite/burpbrowser/91.0.4472.101/chrome: 4: +��: not found /home/kali/.BurpSuite/burpbrowser/91.0.4472.101/chrome: 5: h}P: not found /home/kali/.BurpSuite/burpbrowser/91.0.4472.101/chrome: 6: h}P: not found /home/kali/.BurpSuite/burpbrowser/91.0.4472.101/chrome: 7: ��R�td��: not found /home/kali/.BurpSuite/burpbrowser/91.0.4472.101/chrome: 8: Syntax error: ")" unexpected /home/kali/.BurpSuite/burpbrowser/91.0.4472.101/chrome: 1: ELF: not found /home/kali/.BurpSuite/burpbrowser/91.0.4472.101/chrome: 2: ��P: not found /home/kali/.BurpSuite/burpbrowser/91.0.4472.101/chrome: 3: ��P: not found /home/kali/.BurpSuite/burpbrowser/91.0.4472.101/chrome: 4: ��h: not found /home/kali/.BurpSuite/burpbrowser/91.0.4472.101/chrome: 4: +��: not found /home/kali/.BurpSuite/burpbrowser/91.0.4472.101/chrome: 5: h}P: not found /home/kali/.BurpSuite/burpbrowser/91.0.4472.101/chrome: 6: h}P: not found /home/kali/.BurpSuite/burpbrowser/91.0.4472.101/chrome: 7: ��R�td��: not found /home/kali/.BurpSuite/burpbrowser/91.0.4472.101/chrome: 8: Syntax error: ")" unexpected /home/kali/.BurpSuite/burpbrowser/91.0.4472.101/chrome: 1: ELF: not found /home/kali/.BurpSuite/burpbrowser/91.0.4472.101/chrome: 2: ��P: not found /home/kali/.BurpSuite/burpbrowser/91.0.4472.101/chrome: 3: ��P: not found /home/kali/.BurpSuite/burpbrowser/91.0.4472.101/chrome: 4: ��h: not found /home/kali/.BurpSuite/burpbrowser/91.0.4472.101/chrome: 4: +��: not found /home/kali/.BurpSuite/burpbrowser/91.0.4472.101/chrome: 5: h}P: not found /home/kali/.BurpSuite/burpbrowser/91.0.4472.101/chrome: 6: h}P: not found /home/kali/.BurpSuite/burpbrowser/91.0.4472.101/chrome: 7: ��R�td��: not found /home/kali/.BurpSuite/burpbrowser/91.0.4472.101/chrome: 8: Syntax error: ")" unexpected

Hi, The issue is that we do not currently ship ARM compatible binaries for either Java (when you are using the installable version of Burp that comes embedded with its own JRE) or the embedded browser (for either the standalone Jar file version of Burp or the installable version of Burp). This results in issues for users when trying to run Burp on this type of architecture (In your situation, when you try and launch the embedded browser, which is based on Chromium. on your ARM64 based machine it cannot find the appropriate binary file and fails). We do not have an exact ETA for when this will be supported but it is something that has already been raised with our developers so I will link your forum post to the feature request so that we can update this thread when we have more news to share. Please let me know if you have any questions about this.

Hello! I am curious if there was any update on this?

Hi Alex, We have released a version of Burp compatible with MacOS M1 architecture (a specific M1 compatible installer is available for version 2021.12.1). Providing support for Linux based ARM64 architecture is still in our development backlog, I am afraid.

Hi, Support for running Burp on Linux ARM64 architecture is still in our development backlog. We will update this forum thread if we have any further news to share about this support.

Hello , I have a license of burp pro and reading forum I noticed that I can't start embedded browser in my kali virtual machine on my m1. There a workaround to fix that ? I understand if chromium already running in arm64 linux the problem is not browser (forgive me if I wrong ).

Hi, As noted in the previous messages in this forum post - we currently do not provide support for Linux ARM64 architecture. This, unfortunately, means that you will not be able to use the embedded browser on your kali machine. You should still be able to use an external browser to proxy your traffic, in the usual way. As also noted in the previous messages - we do have an existing feature request to provide Linux ARM64 support so I can certainly add your interest to this so that we can continue to monitor the demand for this.

For what it's worth, I'd also like to voice my support for Linux ARM64 support!

Ben, PortSwigger Agent | Last updated: Oct 21, 2022 09:15AM UTC

Thanks Timothy - we have added your +1 to the feature request.

I would also like to voice support for this. I to am running Kali ARM64 via Parallels on M1 based Mac.

Thanks Paul - we have also added your interest to this. As noted previously, we will update this forum thread if we have any further news to share about this.

Still no support for BurpSuite on Mac M1 with Kali Linux (arm64) in parallels??
