Hacking attempt to my router?


I have a **Tenda AC23** router, and recently I found out that it has an open port, **5500**. In router’ settings I didn’t find any configuration related to this port or its purpose, so I forwarded it to my raspberry pi, where I created a python server that prints out everything received on that port. After a few days, I’ve seen this output:

`b’x03x00x00/*xe0x00x00x00x00x00Cookie: mstshash=Administrrnx01x00x08x00x03x00x00x00’`

from this IP address (a possible “attacker”?): ****

I’m a little bit worried and don’t know exactly what to do, cause I think in the past there were more requests like this. I tried to send manually this buffer to my router, after disabling the forwarding, but I didn’t receive any response. Also, I didn’t find any custom firmware (eg dd-wrt) for my router, in order to fix this issue by disabling the port.

Any other suggestions? Thanks
