Re: Can you patch BroadPwn without upgrading to Stretch?

That's what I figured just wanted to make sure.

Thanks!

One more question... Is there an easy way to verify that the Broadpwn vulnerability has been patched?

Re: Can you patch BroadPwn without upgrading to Stretch?

So just to confirm, all I would need to run on my existing Jessie Raspberry Pis to patch the BroadPwn vulnerability is:

sudo apt-get update

?

Can you patch BroadPwn without upgrading to Stretch?

I have several Raspberry Pis deployed across the US that are currently running Raspbian Jessie. I am able to access them via SSH remotely and would like to find a way to patch the BroadPwn vulnerability. I see that there are instructions on how to upgrade an existing Jessie install to Stretch but it...

RPi 3 - Specify wlan#

I have a Raspberry Pi 3 and am using the built-in wifi to create an AP but would like to add a wifi dongle and use wlan1 to do something else. My issue is that the built-in wifi does not always get assigned to wlan0 so I can't rely on them having the same device every time. Does anyone know how I co...

Intro The goal for this guide is first to create an 'ethernet bridge' between two Raspberry Pis by turning a serial connection into an ethernet connection. Then, using a router connected to Pi #1, internet access will be passed through to Pi #2 and anything connected to its Wifi or LAN, depending o...

Re: Set "default" IP address(not static)

That is perfect thank you!

I was able to change it so that it would work the default 169.254.x.x address that my laptop gets assigned:

Code: Select all

profile static_eth0
static ip_address=169.254.100.100

interface eth0

The method I had here originally no longer works. I have updated the guide to work with the Raspberry Pi 3 and the built in wifi.

Starting from a clean install, as mentioned by timb, use the wifi connection GUI so that it fills out the wpa_supplicant file automatically. For reference, my auto-generated ...
