    omg, what can be the next move?

    in case i got the point right, the bright side about that...now it's easily you can know if you are infected or not ...just checking router settings !!! unless it ruins your router completely

    What's there to worry about, exactly, when this is easily prevented by changing the router's default password and avoid installing garbage? :rolleyes:

    Not just change the defaults, but only access the router configuration from a read only OS.
    Turn off the router from time to time to flush the RAM.
