Ars Technica reports that routers running the alternative router firmware Tomato are under attack.
It looks like the attack is just looking for default passwords, so as long as you don't have default/weak passwords I think you will be ok.

Internet routers running Tomato are under attack by notorious crime gang.  The Muhstik botnet has targeted other IoT devices. Now it's attacking Tomato routers.
