Misfortune cookie security vulnerability

I have come across information regarding a potential security exposure on our Shaw routers. The link to the information is:

Check if Your Home Router is Vulnerable 


There is a link on the page that checks if port 7547 is open to the public. I checked it and, sure enough, it was open and the result was:


Your router has port 7547 open and may be vulnerable. Response: Cisco-CcspCwmpTcpCR/1.0


If this is a port used by Shaw to manage the router, why is it open to the public?
