On the heels of a series of malware attacks targeting home routers, D-Link today announced the integration of a CAPTCHA system to its home and small office routers.

The new CAPTCHA system will be particularly useful to thwart malicious attacks that target default passwords on routers to alter DNS records to hijack all future connections.
