    This problem is partly the fault of those who assign default passwords to their routers. Even the best security can't protect against stupidity.

    The Preacher is right:

    + many routers have some user account for the tech support ppl. ---> very usefull for hackers trough.

    (So: check your router vendor website and your router to do something about it.)
