I read the manual online and made a factory reset to it, and then changed password
I'm still amazed how someone stole my miner Tongue

i still think that this is just a software glitch especially with forwarding, because someone had to either hack into your computer or router and if so, you have bigger problems than just a miner.

also, when you say...stole a miner...do you mean that your miner seized to hash to your pool and was hashing to another address?
if yes, then it was hacked (unless it defaulted to factory settings), if no, then just a software glitch.

To my understanding the OP port forwarded his miner so that he could access it and check on it from anywhere. All it would take for someone to hijack the miner would be to log in with the default credentials ( root/root ) and then they could change anything they want.

The OP wasn't able to login to his miner since the default login would have been changed by the person who hijacked it. I don't think it's a software bug, if there was a bug like that in the firmware I suspect we would have heard about it already, and have others complaining about similar issues, but I think the fact that the OP mentioned that it was port forwarded and using the default logins is a dead giveaway that it was hijacked and the login details were changed.

i agree, but the test is whether it was still hashing to OP account or not. If not, then i could/would believe that it was truly hacked.
Also, I am not familiar with port forwarding, but wouldn't you need some kind of access to OP computer or at least router to do this?

To port forward you'd probably need access to a router. I'm guessing the OP would have set this up beforehand, which was why the miner was exposed to the internet.

I also came across this Reddit thread earlier today. It sounds pretty much identical to the problems the OP is having, and after ensuring that all ports on his network were closed, the guy who posted that thread didn't have his miner hacked again.

I don't think it was a software glitch because at the same time it stopped hasing on the pool I chose, I belive it was set to mine somewhere else Tongue

OK, but then look at that reddit that the OP just posted-you might have bigger problems than just a miner.
It is possible that your computer and router are compromised as well.
