It might also show a low resistance as a short if the other end of the cable is plugged into a device. Still, all the RJ11 plugs I've got have only 4 conductors, so possibly something is wrong with the tester itself.

Sure that's not an RJ17 or somesuch?

Second row shows there is a break in the line

Break? Looks like a short to me. But you have a problem.
