If you dont have a router, this is not for you, but if you have more than one computer connected to the internet, or have a wireless system at home, this might be of interest.

If you have not changed the password to your router (yes, routers have passwords) you are probably vulnerable to a nasty little scripting attack. It is a few weeks, but back in February we were a little busy with the ice, so this is something worth looking into.

The writeup Is a little technical, but has links to instructions for setting a password on your router, which seems all that you need to do.
