Hi!

Alongside our WiFi Pineapple and LAN Turtle firmware release, we're happy to announce firmware 3.0 for the Packet Squirrel. This update, like the LAN Turtle's, features an up-to-date kernel, firmware base and packages, including nmap, tcpdump and OpenVPN.

Change Log 3.2:

  • General
    • Fix an issue affecting package installation and signature verification.
  • Misc
    • Work around a kernel bug causing packet filtering to fail in some tools. Thank you @adde88!
    • Remove PHP from the firmware.

Change Log 3.1:

  • General
    • Fix an issue where NTFS and VFAT formatted USB storage devices would not be detected properly.
  • Misc
    • Fix an issue where the C2 Client would not auto-start.

Change Log 3.0:

  • General
    • Update base firmware from OpenWRT 15.05 to 19.07.
    • Update kernel from 3.18.84 to 4.14.133.
  • Packages
    • OpenVPN package now supports LZ4-V2 compression.

 

To update your Packet Squirrel, grab the latest firmware from the Hak5 Download Portal and follow the Upgrade Instructions.

On both of my packet squirrel units, I found that after the upgrade to 3.0 they would not connect to the C2 server;

I found this:

root@squirrel:/etc/init.d# ls -lah
drwxr-xr-x    1 root     root           0 Aug  5 21:29 .
drwxr-xr-x    1 root     root           0 Aug 13 12:25 ..
----SNIP----
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root         361 Aug  5 21:28 cc-client
----SNIP----
root@squirrel:/etc/init.d#

Once I chmod that to make it executable (chmod 755 chmod 755 /etc/init.d/cc-client) - my devices connect to C2 properly once more.

I hope this helps other users with the same issue as me, and helps the devs fix the current image.

Hi @Foxtrot - the new firmware is great. Is there any chance we can modify '/etc/opkg.conf' in a future release to add the following line?

dest usb /mnt

I've been experimenting with installing required packages directly onto USB with some success so far and was hoping a firmware update wouldn't wipe it out or require others to add it for future payloads. Thanks!

Thanks for the feedback! I'll definitely see about adding a usb destination for the next release.
