As the manufacturer Mikrotik announced, there is a vulnerability in the current RouterOS Winbox service, which was patched on April 23, 2018.
Since all RouterOS devices offer free upgrades with just two clicks, we recommend to update your device with the button "Check for updates", if you haven't done so already.
We recommend you take the following steps:
- Upgrade RouterOS to the latest version
- Change your password after the upgrade
- Restore your configurations and check, if there are any unknown settings
- Implement a good firewall as suggested in the following link:
Is your device affected?
All Versions from 6.29 (release date: 2015/28/05) to 6.42 (release date: 2018/04/20) are endangered.
