ATT Smart Home Manager Device Scan: Exposed Password Warning

Plugged in a server running Ubuntu and got a warning: 

"There was 1 vulnerability found on your <device>. The vulnerability is an exposed password."

Any idea how I can go about troubleshooting this? Thanks!

personal opinion.

IMHO, cable modems, fiber modems (etc) should never be used as default firewalls. (but I understand why it might be nice for someone non-technical.)

That's not at all helpful. How do you know that's how poster has the network set up? The app supposedly scans each individual device connected to the network, and provides ZERO information on what the "exposed" password is, only that a specific device has one
