  • Position - The position number for the current payload (for sniper attacks).
  • Payload - The payload(s) used in the request.
  • Status - The HTTP status code.
  • Time of day - The time of day the request was made.
  • Response received - The time taken to begin receiving a response (in milliseconds).
  • Response completed - The time taken for the response to complete (in milliseconds).
  • Error - Whether a network error occurred when issuing the request.
  • Timeout - Whether a timeout occurred when waiting for or processing the response.
  • Length - The length of the response in bytes.
  • Cookies - Any cookies received in the response.
  • Comment - Any user-applied comment.

The following details are also available if the appropriate settings are configured:

  • The results of any match grep items.
  • The data extracted from any extract grep items.
  • Whether or not the payload was echoed in the response, if payload grep was configured.
  • Redirects followed - The number of redirections that were followed.
  • Interactions - The number of interactions made with the Collaborator server as a result of the Collaborator payloads. This is only present for an attack that uses the Collaborator payloads payload type.
