More info is needed to help you.

What miner?

Some gpu miners have team viewer .


Do your hashes not show on the pool you mine?

I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

What is the meaning of hack miner? It will be immediately seen. I think this is a bad idea. Hack the system to make 20 dollars? Lol. Probably much more profitable to hack into the wallet and when will it be a big sum, then, to kidnap coins. Hackers can spend years waiting in the wings and strike one blow at the time.

Changing the password is not sufficient - you're usually getting hacked through the API which is left open, and has its own hard coded login credentials, so you need to be behind a router that stops incoming connections.

crazy things,first time I hear about anybodys router being hijacked  Shocked
you should be safe behind NAT,though
a usual household router would suffice,but I wonder how it is even possible technically
accessing your miner through API or open ports?

It’s possible but not worth the time. In any responsible mining setup a change in hashrate like a miner switching pools is easily noticed and if you have hashrate notifications you’ll see it in a couple hours or so. Plus it’s not hard to reflash your miner in the event it’s hijacked out of your control.

Yes like your router it is of your property and near you, so if you notice anything funny, you have wires and control and can always reset it, or change pool password, maybe check withdraw wallet if has been modified. If anyone uses your worker ID with their machines, they will just mine for you and add profit to your account. It's security depends much from WI-FI security, although a miner can't be seen by data sniffers or programs that attack wifi due to their ethernet connection which runs via cables, we all know that if youre successfully connected to the wi-fi network, you are in a LAN and you can perform easily IP and port scans to see any device and then you could inject data. It's mandatory to have a strong wi-fi password and to disable WPS protocol if present because all us technicians know it's a major security flaw. If the wi-fi is secure, only way to disturb you is to hack your pool or wallet website, but it's almost impossible since they're run by very expert people and somebody is always online to check. Furthermore, the connection is a stratum+tcp protocol which is similar to the onion one used in the tor network, and should keep you fairly anonymous, even for the pool owners.
