Avast alerts me about x10 router issue?

Avast antivirus is alerting me on my home devices about a security issue or vulnerability with my router. Pics attached. 

 

I run the smart scan and this is the only problem i get. The info provided doesnt point me to what exactly is the problem with my router. 

 

Is this a bogus alert? My network is set up with encrypter passwords. 

 

I do have QoS enabled.

Probably. Similar reports turn up here from time to time.

 

Just search this forum for Avast.

 

They usually turn out to be false alarms. Indeed, I can't remember a genuine incident.

 

AV software can break access to Netgear devices, but that is another matter.

 

 

 

Just another user.
