GoPro Password Dictionary File Creator


  • creates the dictionary file
  • runs with QEMU to get all the prefixes
  • gopro-dict.txt is the dictionary file with every combo
  • gpNet_patch_definition.txt patches I needed to make to gpNet to gather the prefixes
  • password.list is the prefixes. "snow" would be the output for a 0 input. Line Number-2 is the input / output correlation.

How this list was created

Since this password scheme came out we've wanted to determine every password combination. After seeing KonradIt's disclosure we finally sat down and reversed the password generation methodology. The latest GoPro's set a password using the following convention: [sport][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9] ie. wave1234, sport5678, or tennis2222.

To determine all the possible password combinations I would need to sniff all the prefixes. Reviewing the code was quite complicated due to some obfuscation. However, I thought this would be a great time to use a dynamic analysis method with Docker. After learning docker, and creating an image ran by QEMU-arm, I couldn't debug the code. I realized QEMU can't/does virtualize the hardware breakpoints and therefore can run gdb. After some research I went to justing the gdb like server built into qemu itself. Check out my methodology and the resulting password dictionary file.

Reference for running & debugging ARM code found in the linux sub-process

Compile bunpack.c & run to extract Sections from update. Pass the whole directory as an attribute. Sorry this was precompiled for pc

Take sector08 and mount it in linux

mkdir -p ./romfs
mkdir -p ./fs
sudo mount -o user ./sector08.bin ./romfs/
sudo bindfs -u $(id -u) -g $(id -g) ./romfs/ ./fs

Started with docker, but since the container is running on a qemu virtual machine there were some low-level hw isues with setting breakpoints etc. Easiest to debug straight out of in QEMU with the -g option.

What I believe my setup was sudo apt-get install gcc-arm-linux-gnueabihf qemu qemu-user qemu-user-static binfmt-support gdb-multiarch

now copy the static library into the created filesystem

cp /usr/bin/qemu-arm-static /home/trunk/gopro/hero7/fs
mkdir -p /home/trunk/gopro/hero7/fs/tmp/fuse_d
mkdir -p /home/trunk/gopro/hero7/fs/tmp/fuse_d/MISC
mkdir -p /home/trunk/gopro/hero7/fs/tmp/fuse_a
mkdir -p /home/trunk/gopro/hero7/fs/tmp/fuse_b

Depending on what you are doing, copy your fuse_b mfg.json and bin files to fuse_b NOTE: fuse_a keeps a backup of conf.json.bak

the password creator needs /dev/urandom. Perfect, we can just make our own static version with something like

printf -v string '\\x%02x\\x%02x\\x%02x\\x%02x\\x%02x\\x%02x' $i 0 0 0 0 0
echo -ne $string > /home/trunk/gopro/hero7/fs/dev/urandom

patch & stub out your binary as needed. See 'gpNet_patch_definition.txt' I unfortunately couldn't get gdb/qemu to overwrite the .text section, so maunally editting I went.

Now start up the server

sudo chroot /home/trunk/gopro/hero7/fs ./qemu-arm-static -g 12345 -singlestep usr/local/gopro/bin/gpNet.patched

Then with a new terminal (or IDA) connect to the gdbserver with commands such as `gdb-multiarch below can be a script. The breakpoint is set to the main function of the gpNet. Run doesn't work as there are no symbols. c is continue.

file gpNet.patched
target remote localhost:12345
set arch arm
layout asm
b *0x9FEC

If you are using IDA be sure to open up the ports in linux and in your client pc's firewall
