This link deals with modem security problems. (It's followed by an article which should interest Tor users.)
From the article:

Interestingly, I have a router/modem from my isp and it isn't full of the security holes listed.
Surprisingly it doesn't mention the simple security measure of turning off the modem when computers are not in use.
