Only of one of the following is true:

1) Your modem is set to Auto Answer, and the person is question is a very good hacker.

2) Your modem is set to Auto Answer, and your computer is set up as a server or a BBS system.

3) Your modem is set to Auto Answer, and your computer is configured for remote access via a remote access application.

As you can see, if your modem is not set to Auto Answer, you won't have any trouble.
