  • 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.

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.

Toady - That is EXACTLY the information I was looking for here today.  Excellent find/fix.

 

Solution is:

chmod 755 /etc/init.d/cc-client   

reboot

Hello,

We just released 3.1, which should address the issues with the C2 Client autostart and also an issue with NTFS and VFAT drives not working as intended. Catch the changelog in the first post and downloads at https://downloads.hak5.org.

 

Thanks,
Foxtrot.

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.
