Serious security failings in home routers are getting more attention from both attackers and researchers.
In recent weeks, attacks have been mounted on Linksys and Asus routers via loopholes that thieves could exploit.
In Poland, reports suggest one gang has successfully adjusted router settings in a bid to steal cash.

seems like remote router management is the problem ,
indeed I am not happy that my BT home hub has 2 ports open to the world ,
just so BT can remotely adjust /snoop /whatever ,
