|0004978||Kali Linux||[All Projects] General Bug||public||2018-09-11 14:27||2019-02-11 14:56|
|Priority||normal||Severity||minor||Reproducibility||have not tried|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0004978: Get rid of pyside and shiboken (deprecated by pyside2)|
|Description||pyside (version 1) and shiboken have been dropped from Debian Testing a while ago as it's deprecated, applications should switch to pyside2 (or something else). We have kept it around in Kali for a while but now is time to get applications updated or removed.|
The following applications do depend on pyside 1.x currently:
- sparta (for python-pyside.qtwebkit which is not available in pyside2!)
- ubertooth (in recommends)
We should open upstream tickets asking them their plan to switch to pyside2 or something else.
|Additional Information||Current status: bugs filed for all packages|
[X] iphone-backup-analyzer: https://github.com/PicciMario/iPhone-Backup-Analyzer-2/issues/16 -> dropped from kali-rolling
[X] rfcat: https://github.com/atlas0fd00m/rfcat/issues/26
[X] sparta: https://github.com/SECFORCE/sparta/issues/94
[X] ubertooth: https://bugs.debian.org/919388
So I'm looking into iphone-backup-analyzer. Our package is a python application which used to be hosted on http://ipbackupanalyzer.com/ That domain doesn't contain anything. But I found the code on GitHub (in the account of the upstream author): https://github.com/PicciMario/iPhone-Backup-Analyzer-2
The application hasn't seen any update since 2014, I believe it's highly unlikely that it will be ever updated to work with pyside2. The package is apparently not referenced in the PWK course but it's part of kali-linux-forensic. @dookie can we get rid of that package in Kali ?
Note that our tools.kali.org page (https://tools.kali.org/forensics/iphone-backup-analyzer) links to a wrong page though, it links to https://sourceforge.net/p/iphoneanalyzer/ which is a separate java application.
I still filed https://github.com/PicciMario/iPhone-Backup-Analyzer-2/issues/16 to inform upstream.
I filed the issue for rfcat: https://github.com/atlas0fd00m/rfcat/issues/26
In the worst case, we should be able to do the port to Pyside2 ourselves by copying what was done in ubertooth: https://github.com/greatscottgadgets/ubertooth/commit/7985d95f67819e4e9eb0db0f71eb17a564363faa
I filed the issue for sparta: https://github.com/SECFORCE/sparta/issues/94
There's hasn't been much upstream activity lately, it's not clear if the issue will be fixed in a timely manner. @dookie, would it be problematic to drop sparta from Kali? It's not referenced in the PWK course but it's part of the kali-linux-full meta-package.
||For ubertooth, the software has already been updated to use PySide2 but the Debian package still has dependencies on the old package. I filed a Debian bug asking the maintainer to update the dependencies: https://bugs.debian.org/919388|
||@rhertzog I don't see any issue with removing iphone-backup-analyzer|
I just uploaded a new rfcat relying on pyside2 (version 170508-0kali3).
ubertooth has been fixed on the Debian side as well (version 2018.12.R1-2).
I uploaded kali-meta 2019.2.0 which drops iphone-backup-analyzer from the metapackage and I removed the package from kali-dev.
For sparta, I tried to ping the upstream developers through twitter since I haven't gotten an answer: https://twitter.com/raphaelhertzog/status/1093812023815819266
||Hi. Thanks for the ping on twitter. We pushed a fix for sparta today. Should be fine now on v1.0.4.|
||sparta updated to version 1.0.4-0kali1|
||@st3r30byt3 Thanks! Note however that you are still based on Qt4... you need to switch to Qt5 to be safe. See https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=875109 about the future removal of python-qt4 from Debian.|
