For people using routers at home, perhaps the best advice is to make sure its administrative interface is not internet facing.
Actually, even this has a pretty bad track record of working since it is trivial to design a web page that accesses internal routers by simply guessing what there IP is (could it perhaps be 192.168.1.1?) Some routers allow access with the external IP from the inside, no guessing required here.
