Not sure if it applies to me, I recently got a router from Mnet with
password preset. I got the hardware as replacement for older hardware
that was not given out with the contract years ago.

I still have a (very old) sheet of paper with my credentials but i am
not sure if those are given out to new customers. Anybody else uses Mnet
in Munich as ISP can clarify on this?
