Change your router's username and password!!!

Security researchers at Indiana University and Symantec have discovered a javascript hack to change the DNS on Linksys, D-Link and Netgear routers.

"This DNS change lets the attacker divert all the Net traffic going through the router. For example, if the victim types in "," the request could be sent to a similar-looking fake page created to steal sensitive data."

Very serious!! So if you have a router please change the username and password to something other than the default "admin" and "password".
