MikroTik Notes

A collection of notes on MikroTik configuration & Maintenance.

To MicroTik or to MikroTik? I can never remember.

A collection of notes on MikroTik configuration & Maintenance.

Upgrade your firmware!

One of my clients had their MikroTik compromised in 2018. MikroTik had published an updated firmware version a few months before that mitigated the "attach vector", but unfortunately the device hadn't been updated in time. The end result? VOIP accounts compromised, about $300 of voice calls charged.

So the lesson learned is: always keep your MikroTik firmware up to date! How? You have two options (using WinFig):

(1) Check for Updates button on the QuickSet page

(2) or System → Packages, "Check for Updates"
