Hello, Do you think you will add a Slow Loris Test feature ? Regards

Can you provide more information on this? Is it used to test DoS attacks?

@Uthman, you're right. If I'm not mistaken the tool opens as much connections as it can, and sends a bit of data right before the timeout. That way it's denying the service to other users.

Thanks. It looks like there are dedicated tools to look for this issue so I am not sure how helpful it would be to add it into Burp. - https://nmap.org/nsedoc/scripts/http-slowloris-check.html - https://tools.kali.org/stress-testing/slowhttptest Burp Scanner is generally interested in common web application vulnerabilities. I have raised a feature request for you.
