Can Dialer Malware work on Broadband?

I have just had 'meanpean' dialer captured by AdAware. Surely this cannot do it's dirty business over a broadband connection can it? Or can I expect my second high 'phone bill now that this has happened?

Apparantly it can still work if your old dial-up modem is enabled

No, it can't work over broadband, but disconnect your modem from the telephome line.

That is your dial up modem (telephome = telephone) :-)

I didn't think it could. Thanks all.
