Raw response window display corruption

Jerome | Last updated: Jun 20, 2016 03:32PM UTC

Hello, In my current engagement I am experiencing a display corruption issue in the Response window, both in "Raw" and in "HTML". The render tab actually seems to work well. I have the feeling it is some sort of encoding issue. https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BwT0BfSFrTwNLUZKelBtTU90Qmc Thx, Jerome

It looks like this application is returning content in a non-standard character set without stating the character set in the response headers. Occasionally, we see servers returning content using UTF-16 without saying so. Burp tries to infer the character set from the headers, or the HTML meta tag. In this situation, you can tell Burp what character set to use at User options / Display / Character sets. Unfortunately, this setting is applied Burp-wide for all responses, so you'll need to toggle the setting if the behavior is not happening everywhere.
