Hacker creates website that can control your router

Bad news for those of you paranoid of all the bad boy hackers out there who are just dying to get control of your computer: a researcher has created a website that, when you visit it, can take complete control of your router. Yikes!

The website, which pulls what's called a "DNS rebinding attack," changing the configuration of your router and letting the perp remotely administer the device. Want to make sure this doesn't happen to you? Make sure your router has a unique, non-obvious password. That's your best defense, as this hack relies on most people using the default or easily-guessable passwords. You are welcome.
