Well, the rampant paranoia of the MD5 online cracking thread prompted me to change all my passwords...To 10 and 30 characters (inc. captials and punctuation; no, nothing not found on the keyboard) for user and root, respectively. Fucking hard to remember, though. I considered adding another phrase to the root pass which would take it up to 50 chars...

Also checked if my Netgear router does have a 'superman' back-door and it doesn't.
