    Hack lets intruders sneak into home routers

    I got my password changed.

    Can go here to get a good long password from https://www.grc.com/passwords.htm

    Then here you can test how strong your password is.

    You get a long green bar with this above it...
    Congratulations! You've supplied a sample password that is difficult to guess and hard to crack. It is recommended that you use passwords of this type.

    On my router I could not use the whole long password over at https://www.grc.com/passwords.htm
    because my router password can only be 37 characters long.

    Look here too at the Symantec Blog and your get more info and links to router support pages.
