Rate Limit Bypass

Using similar endpoints

If you are attacking the /api/v3/sign-up endpoint try to perform bruteforce to /Sing-up, /SignUp, /singup...
Also try appending to the original endpoint bytes like %00, %0d%0a, %0d, %0a, %09, %0C, %20

Blank chars in code/params

Try adding some blank byte like %00, %0d%0a, %0d, %0a, %09, %0C, %20 to the code and/or params. For example code=1234%0a or if you are requesting a code for an email and you only have 5 tries, use the 5 tries for [email protected], then for [email protected]%0a, then for [email protected]%0a%0a, and continue...

Changing IP origin using headers

1
X-Originating-IP: 127.0.0.1
2
X-Forwarded-For: 127.0.0.1
3
X-Remote-IP: 127.0.0.1
4
X-Remote-Addr: 127.0.0.1
5
X-Client-IP: 127.0.0.1
6
X-Host: 127.0.0.1
7
X-Forwared-Host: 127.0.0.1
8
9
10
#or use double X-Forwared-For header
11
X-Forwarded-For:
12
X-Forwarded-For: 127.0.0.1
Copied!
If they are limiting to 10 tries per IP, every 10 tries change the IP inside the header.

Change other headers

Try changing the user-agent, the cookies... anything that could be able to identify you.

Adding extra params to the path

If the limit in in the path /resetpwd, try BFing that path, and once the rate limit is reached try /resetpwd?someparam=1
