Consider the following :It is possible to scan an ip range to get IPs of other airtel users.Then telnet into the modem of any user using their Wan Ip and using a user id and password which is generic to all airtel users and you can get this generic user id and password from any call centre agent After this you can configure, reboot - whatever on the remote adslAlso using a shell script you can find out the user id and password a user uses to connect to AirtelHence to avoid all this please change all your router passwords

Or you can just disable remote admin from the router :)

How many people would know how to disable remote admin from the router. Airtel shouldnt be allowing this
