Burp Suite vs CSRF Tokens Part 2: CSRFTEI for Remote Tokens

The following is a version of my CSRF Extractor Burp Extension that works for remote tokens, the original sequential tokens version is available here. The following code is explained here.

print "Loading CSRFTEI (Sea-Surf-Tea)"
print "Cross-site Request Forgery Token Extractor and Inserter"
print "Remember to update token details in the extension!n"

# You need to import the interfaces you want to use here there's a list in the
# API documentation!
# In this module, I'm just messing with requests so only need the basics:
from burp import IBurpExtender
from burp import IHttpListener

import httplib

# Regex are used for capturing the token value from the response
import re

# In the site I originally wrote this plugin for the token was in a JSON message
# in the strange form name='csrft' value='*', you should change the below so that
# it's appropriate for your target application, taking note of if ' or " are used
# and changing 'csrft' to the name of the token used in your application, e.g.
# RequestVerificationToken, antiCSRF, CSRFtoken, etc.
csrfregex = re.compile(r"name='csrft's+value='(.*?)'")

# The following code was taken from:
# It's not the only method of achieving this, but I thought it was graceful so used it here :) Kudos to Brandon
