    I hope, perhaps unrealistically, that anyone savvy enough to install their own firmware is also savvy enough to know to change the router password to something not easily guessable.

    Of course, we paranoid types allow external access to the router only through a VPN tunnel or through authenticated SSH. But apparently this botnet can be defeated by a good password.

    I also would like to find out more information about how bad this outbreak has been.

    by a good password and not permitting wan side ssh access (or at least not on port 22)... i mean, who does that?
