theregister has an article about a root vulnerability on recent dd-wrt 


 From the article:

"The bug resides in DD-WRT's hyper text transfer protocol daemon, which 
runs as root. Because the httpd doesn't sanitize user-supplied input, 
it's vulnerable to remote command injection. While the httpd doesn't 
listen on the outbound interface, attackers can easily access it using 
CSRF (cross-site request forgery) techniques."

For people who have enabled remote httpd access, it's probably much worse.
