Hi folks, I am going to show you how to fix ‘secure connection failed error code:SSL_ERROR_RX_RECORD_TOO_LONG’ in Burp Suite


I was getting this issue in burp suite community edition and successfully i could fix


We need to downgrade java-11-openjdk-amd64 to java-8/10-openjdk-amd64 which the system has. to overcome this issue

Type this command in terminal

update-alternatives --config java

You will be asked to change java version, we need to select java-8/10-openjdk-amd64. I selected java-8-openjdk-amd64 by choosing “2” number

java version has been changed

Now Burp Suite will function properly

thank you for reading
