Not really anything new. There was a scare a while ago about wirelessly propagated malware which would infect linux based SOHO routers. It never really took off.

The problem with taking over the router is that you can only look at the unencrypted traffic and due to the limited resources of the router you can't manage looking at lots of traffic and do anything interesting. Its simply just far easier to take over actual computers of people, which you can then get the personal information and credit card information off easily.
