Title: security breach?
Post by: swunderlich on August 16, 2012, 07:16:49 pm
In the vera 3 Dashboard / Overview, I found alerts indicating the following:
   

Type   Source   Time   Description   Device   Format
         18:43:01   Login from IP address: 173:254:216:41 (portal)                  
         21:22:34   Login from IP address: 173:254:216:41 (portal)                  

I have no idea who this is or where it's coming from - should I be concerned?

Are you logging in remotely?

When I logged in via http://cpui5.mios.com I got the same thing:
16:49:01   Login from IP address: 9X:YY:1XX:YYY (portal)

When I log in locally*, I get:
16:43:23      Login from IP address: 7X:YYY:1XX:YY

* This doesn't count just loading the webpage I think...only when you actually log in with your MiOS credentials.

That would be normal behavior IF you're logging in through mios.com

I noticed my alerts are not accurate (up to date/time) from the Overview page sometimes, but if I go to Account>My Alerts the information is correct/updated. Also, I could not delete the alerts from the Overview page but could through 'My Alerts'. Of course the Overview page is still considered Beta.

apologies for reviving an older thread -- anyone knows of a workaround to have Vera send notification (email or sms)  in case there's a "Login from IP address: 173:254:216:41 (portal)" alert?
