Did Avast say which port is open?

What model wifi router do you have?

This relates to remote management of your router. Using telnet port 23 or http port 80, if the userid and password were known, someone could modify the settings. Try disabling it. Could also change the default admin passsord.

 

Do a google search on     avast HNS-WAN-ACCESS

On the page, select TP-Link (Archer). There is a guide on what to do.
