Settings Window


Dumps current web sessions into a SAZ named (QuickSave-"MM-dd-yyyy-HH-mm-ss".saz) to EKFiddle\Captures.


With EKFiddle 0.2, a VPN GUI (.ovpn) is now available inside of Fiddler. It uses the OpenVPN client on Windows and Linux with ovpn files which you can acquire from commercial VPN providers. It will open up a new terminal/xterm whenever it connects to a new server, killing the previous to ensure only one TAP adapter is used at any given time.
  • Windows
Download and install OpenVPN in default directory
Place your .ovpn files inside OpenVPN's config folder.
  • Linux (tested on Ubuntu 16.04)
sudo apt-get install openvpn
Place your .ovpn files in /etc/openvpn.

Settings Window

Build source code Regex

Copies the currently selected sessions' body into memory and opens up a regex website, where you can paste the source code and then work on a regular expression.

Build URI Regex

Copies the currently selected sessions' URI into memory and opens up a regex website, where you can paste the URI and then work on a regular expression.

Connect the dots (BETA)

Allows you to identify the sequence of events between sessions. Right-clik on the session you are interested in retracing your steps to and simply 'connect the dots'. It will label the sequence of events from 01, to n within the comments column. You can reorder that column to have a condensed view of the sequence.

Opens up VirusTotal's page for the currently selected host(s).

Check IP (Geo, pDNS) on VT

Opens up VirusTotal's page for the currently selected session(s)' IP address.

Extract IOCs
