They could of course attack other monitoring routers set as bridges to log what vlan's and traffic eminate from this things ports and build up a picture of it's config ? Use the Mikrotik ones as they are cheap enough unless you have a cisco fetish.

Dead LAN's hand: IT staff 'locked out' of data center's core switch after the only bloke who could log into it dies
Mikrotik's cloud core router all had the nix NTP bug and crashed.. fun for admins worldwide, including me :(
they were alerted to it in April but as usual they did nothing about it. You won't even find an apology from them on their forum to the many complaints..
but they plan to fix it soon (i.e. stop using an out dated linux kernel ! )
Re: provide only internet services
They made 2Bn profit last year and received nearly 2Bn in state aid to roll out "fibre" .
This of course doesn't mean they wouldn't of made a profit without it though as most of that went to buy the sports rights at way over the market value :)
