D-Link Routers have Admin Backdoor

Reading this short article, over your D-Link router, you might think that you’re in serious trouble.  But you’re not.  All routers (or virtually all) are shipped with external admin access disabled.  This means you can’t reach the admin config screen from the outside.  This is a good thing.  This means that the standard home user, using an affected router, isn’t affected by this exploit at all (unless they’ve got their wireless wide open or something).

Also note that the affected routers are quite old, and you’d have a hard time finding one in use today.
