Well if it's home routers, they already have a big problem in the not-fixed WPS Vulnerability: Cisco Security Response: Wi-Fi Protected Setup PIN Brute Force Vulnerability
There's still no patch for my WRT610n

Anyway from the comments on the video it looks like they'll have to get an executable into your network before triggering this issue:

Hi Christopher,
We're still investigating some tricks to exploit this vulnerability from the internet, but for now, yes - it seems safe from the outside of the network. Of course, unless services are available from the internet.

...and if you have a hacker's executable in your network why would you worry about your router anyway
