Vodafone modem + email hacking

Has anyone experienced having both their modem and email hacked? I've just managed to get back online after having my services restricted due to being hacked, and having spam sent out.

Spam that appears to be from your address is almost always 'spoofing'. Someone is pretending to be you, and your computer is not compromised.

A hacked modem can't send out email. Did you leave the admin password as 'admin'? Change it.

Vodafone said that both were compromised. I always change my passwords regularly, so much so that I can't always remember them.

Vodafone tier 1 CSRs are ill educated monkeys. They just make up stories to placate people.
