The popular DSL wireless router model from D-Link are allegedly vulnerable to a software bug that could allow remote hackers to modify the DNS (Domain Name System) settings on affected routers and to hijack users' traffic.
The main goal of DNS hijacking is to secretly redirect user’s traffic from a legitimate websites to a malicious one controlled by hackers. The vulnerability might also affects other devices because it is located in the same, widely-used wireless router firmware used by different manufacturers.
Bulgarian security researcher Todor Donev discovered the flaw which exists in a widely deployed ZynOS firmware from ZyXEL Communications Corporation, that is used in network hardware from TP-Link Technologies, ZTE and D-Link.
According to the security researcher, D-Link’s popular DSL2740R wireless router and a number of other D-Link routers, particularly the DLS-320B, are vulnerable.

Late last year, similar router vulnerability was discovered in the web server "RomPager" from AllegroSoft, which is typically embedded into the firmware of routers, modems and other "gateway devices" from about every leading manufacturer.
The flaw put 12 million homes and offices routers from a variety of different manufacturers vulnerable to DNS hijacking attack, which also included kit from D-Link, along with Edimax, Huawei, TP-Link, ZTE, and ZyXEL.

Avast added the home network scan option to check the Dns servers, give it a go and see if your Dns settings are okay.
