Windows 7: Why is my AV reporting a network security issue?

21 Feb 2016   #21

windows 7 ultimate 32 bit

Hi, Benteke,
again check with avast network scan. Then click the details. It will go to a page to give details. There on the right side, click the one that shows, is this not a problem or something. It will list the bottom of the page, with yellow points.
Please, try this, If you could note the avast showing ports, just select those ports, normally 80,21,23 http ftp and etc.and block those ports in windows firewall settings. You will get normal internet browsing with secured settings.
what i did is. went to the firewall, thro control panel, go to advanced settings in firewall, select inbound from left, and then click new rule, then in the browsing scenes, select ports, 80 and 21 and if it shows differently then those ports, click next, check all domains and then click next, select block. Then save and exit.
Try with avast, your problem will be resolved and you are safe. Ofcourse, the ports although shown as stealthy, since firewall allows it in its inbound, avast thinks them as vulnerability. See now my avast scan report

Network card name reporting incorrectly in wireless network list area
My rig uses a Centrino Advanced-N 6230 wireless mini half-card. It reports the correct name except within the wireless network list. Instead of 6230 it reports 6320. I searched the registry to see if I could find the error, but nothing found. It's only a nuisance, and a minor one at that. ...
