If you have a router in your home and you were too lazy to change the password to it, you might wanna do that. Here’s why…

The researchers found that it is possible to change the DNS, or Domain Name System, settings of a router if the owner uses a connected PC to view a Web page with the JavaScript code. This DNS change lets the attacker divert all the Net traffic going through the router. For example, if the victim types in “www.mybank.com,” the request could be sent to a similar-looking fake page created to steal sensitive data.
