I am using DSL, while it does not interfere with the phoneline. What happened was that someone was already talking on the phone and told me to grab it. It was a chordless phone and once I turned it on, it was making the same sound signature that is made when using dial up (somewhere around the same sound signature). I used a wired phone instead and finished talking. I then picked up the chordless phone and did not here the sound signature any more (it was normal) and my internet connection was still on. I already know that some people hack through wireless connections and a phone line picks up the same relative frequency, so is it possible someone tried to hack. I have a firewall and everything but it makes me kind of paranoid (just 2 days ago, my computer lost a lot of data and was found to be infected with tons of Trojans and some spyware---at that moment I was using an unupdated and primitive security suite; right now I have a well-updated one). So, if anyone can tell me...how possible is it that that was a hack.
The question is more along the lines of what is the probability that someone could hack through a telephone line and if so, does it necessarily have to be within the localized region, such as right in front of the apartment/house/where ever else
