Web Cache Poisoning X-Forwarded-Host

Simon | Last updated: Apr 12, 2020 09:00PM UTC

Hi, I am attempting the "Web cache poisoning with an unkeyed header" lab. I am not receiving a response in the Repeater when I add the X-Forwarded-Host (example.com). However, I receive a response as normal with or without the cache buster. I have repeatedly read all the Port Swigger "Support" material and reconfigured my browsers. However, I cannot seem to put my finger on what the issue could be. Could I have misconfigured something? Thank you.

Yes, I am facing the same problem.

Hi Are you getting no response at all to your request sent via Repeater or do you get a request that always says 'miss'?

I guess this is old but I'm facing the same problem. Same with the "Web cache poisoning with multiple headers" lab. I just get no response at all. Not even a "miss".

Hi, Have you checked out the video solution for this lab, made by one of our users, to see if you are on the right track: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cbp7M1Mj5ts

Hi! Same issue: whenever I try to add any X-Forwarded-... header to a request, a blank response is returned after a long waiting time.

Hi Lara, Firstly, are you able to confirm which lab(s) you are having issues with? Secondly, are you able to share with us any details of the steps you are taking to try and solve the lab(s) and what the troublesome request looks like?
