I've had the same problem since yesterday morning...what differs for me is that I'm using a cable modem so I have no router. I also did the Rom-0 test just now and got the same "Address is probably not vulnerable" message.



I just ran the scan again and this message still pops up. I called my ISP's tech support and the tech said that things were fine on my end as well when he checked. Will this be fixed?

I also have cable modem. I thought router was built in there? It also says that home-PC is compromised, not Router. I'm... really confused.

Just to make sure that your router isn't vulnerable and it's an avast bug can you please test your router here: http://rom-0.cz/

Same here.

Address is probably not vulnerable


I found this from another site:
One way to check whether your router is accessible is from outside (from an external IP) is :
- Find out your IP address (when you are online) using http://www.whatismyip.com/
- Then visit, http://www.dnstools.com/ and choose option check port 80 then put in your IP address you earlier found. Click GO
- If you get Connected successfully to port 80. Then your router is accessible from outside (not good - change your router settings).


I got:

Domain Whois Results:

   Not Found: extension =


Checking Port 80...

    Connection failed: Connection timed out

All the above mean that we can safely use our browsers, read our emails etc without having any danger, right??

Are the routers and Internet connections safe despite the fact that the scan identified a problem? There was no attack and our data are protected, right?

Do we have to make any further action??

Try doing a manual VPS update to see if it's already fixed:
