I think we may do a pre-order next week leading up to the launch on Friday, but it wouldn't be publicized really. Just something special for us cool peeps on the forums & IRC.

Ahem...  So does being mid Sept. constitute appeasing our endless anticipation with at least another hint?  Can't blame a fellow for trying right...

Just working on securing a venue for a Hak5 event in San Francisco mid October to introduce you all to our new furry friends. ?️?️?️

Password, please. I have a credit card burning a hole in my wallet. 

Yeah, me too. If I don't see some Hak5 goodies to spend money on I am in danger of making rent this month. :P

Oughta been interesting. I'll be watching the live stream intently. 

 

This blog refers to it as a "programmable MITM device".

I also saw someone on Twitter describe it as "an online tap with payload capability, like the bash bunny".

Darren confirmed that 3 devices are going to be released on Friday. - Packet Squirrel just seems to be one of them (unless there are 2 versions of the squirrel - like the Nano and Tetra are 2 versions of the same tool). 

Anyway looking forward. 

Still no pre-order, Seems I'm going to have to be okay with ordering on the unveiling, just hope the team can ship quickly.  (otherwise, I can always play when I get back from my trip)

See my post here about other possible items, 

While nothing is confirmed by the team, these are registered by Darren. However, it should be noted that only the PacketSquirrel.com domain has any content. The others all give errors. 

Also even if those were the names of new tools, a name still gives us nothing about how the tool carries out its attack or what it can do to aid pivoting. Except maybe the way it connects

for example

USBLadyBug = USB device attack meaning physical access to device under test will be needed

 ScreenCrab = No idea on attack style but it seems like it could be a remote screen grabbing tool (I've no idea how this could work if it was that)

USBBoomStick  = again USB in name so suppose another tool needing physical access

Only about 2 days to go

If I were Darren I'd register at least one BS domain, just to keep people guessing.

Guess 1: The Packet Squirrel is to the LAN turtle what the bash bunny is to the ducky

Guess 2: The Packet Squirrel works as an addon to the LAN Turtle and/or Wifi Pineapple, upgrading their memory, CPU and perhaps storage-space. 

 

Will be interesting to see how much the coupon-code is worth.

Guessing:
ScreenCrab: Screengrabber, HDMI<->HDMI or something, how you'd connect to it remotely is the issue though. Most hideable would be wifi, though USB (through pineapple) or ethernet (with autossh) is also possible.

USBLadybug/USBBroomStick: Atleast one of them I'm guessing is an upgraded ducky, either with remote control, or USB packet interception and transmit over wifi, or USB to bluetooth-adapter.
