it will be some way complicated for me to describe my question (partly because it is unknown for me and partly because my english is not good for such a technical description), but I will try it. Feel free to ask me for additional information. Thanks.
So, I have RouterBoard RB951G-2HnD. Yesterday morning I found my 2 cell phones are disconnected from home WiFi provided by MikroTik. I tried to connect and it opened a browser inside the phone and showed web page from my Internet Service Provided (ISP) with description like "There is a problem with internet connection ... bla ... bla.".
I turned on my desktop PC (on LAN cable), ran winbox (where I usually run ping and traceroute to find where is the problem) and it wrote my password is wrong. I tried again, wrong. I have same password for several months, I wrote it really carefully third time, still wrong. I was little upset.
After several minutes I tried winbox again and I logged without any problem (and with my current password). I checked again the web page from my provided and found there hyperlink to some company, which provides tools to manage networks remotely, manage fees for internet connestion, settings and so on. And I found some description on the web page of this company, what there software/tools can do, which I try to translate:
Generation of settings for MikroTik devices
Backups of settings for MikroTik devices
To be honest, this made me scared. Maybe it's because I don't understand it, but how it sounds to me:Possibility to load any commands (scripts) into all MikroTik devices
- somebody can change settings of my MikroTik, replace it
- somebody can backup settings of my MikroTik and access my WiFi passwords, MAC addresses, and so on this way
- somebody can load any commands into my MikroTik and, because scripting is strong feature in MikroTik, do anything about my network and traffic then
Can I defend myself some way?
Or is it a feature and it is solved in MikroTik, so my settings are fully isolated from ISP interferences into my router?
Or was it everything only coincidence (although the web page of the company providing tools for managing networks says something else)?
I will be really glad for any hint. Thanks.
