Which firewall is he using and does it pass the standard GRC Shields Up! test?

If it is indeed an exploit attempt then this explains how it works
Thanks, MC! The source is his and my ISP!

Both of us use a D-Link ADSL router to get our so-called broadband internet connection over the phone line. The router is configured in our homes by surly employees.

I have PCTools FW as a software firewall which got GRC's all-green signal.

He is even less savvy than I and has no software firewall because he has been told by his broker that any non-connectivity of his trading terminal has its root in the software firewall. So I didn't force him. And so far, other than this avast! warning he doesn't seem to have any other noticeable problem.

Again, I guess it's a matter of, "if it ain't broke...".
