In it's current form this question is quite broad and thus not a great format for this website. This is more of a discussion question as opposed to a question with a concrete answer.

My apologies @Philipp - You are correct and my apologies for the harsh tone.

Because nobody ever gained access to a system on a network through another compromised machine on that network...

comment Someone borrowed my phone and Im scared its hacked
well not technically true - someone could subscribe you to a premium telephone service that charge you for things like "A joke a day" text messages by dialing or texting a specific number. While it's debatable whether or not this is "hacking" a phone, it would be an unwanted result of potentially lending your phone to someone (and probably quite unlikely that this is the case)

comment Looking for a non commercial antimalware application
Down-voted because a) Shopping questions are not a good format for this website, b) because you're too lazy to do your own research and c) if you're too cheap to pay for a product, you can't be as discerning with the specs as you are.

You need to determine where you're getting your DNS server settings from - likely the DHCP server which is most likely on the router. Log into your router, go to the DHCP settings and change the DNS servers that are being distributed to your clients. It would also behoove you to change your password, remove remote administration ability, etc.

comment Broadband security question
@user1369975 why are you convinced the ISP has to be involved? If an ISP is going to modify your traffic, they're going to do it in a way that is much less obvious than transforming common websites to try to trick you into installing a virus. Malicious modification of clients traffic doesn't make for good business.

comment Broadband security question
"When I tried to trace the route of the packets,I found a shocking thing that the packets were being sent first to my ISP and then were being bifurcated to that IP" - the entire point of an ISP is to start the routing of traffic to it's intended destination. It's totally normal to have your ISP as the second or third hop in a trace route.

comment How to secure Outlook [Resolved]
How to you anticipate that something like this would work? The e-mail HAS to be decrypted in order for the end-user to be able to work with it, so if it's not at rest it can't be encrypted.

comment Is it possible to successfully exploit a vulnerability on a router remotely if
I would agree, but who's to say that there aren't back doors in the router you don't even know about? Say for manufacturer troubleshooting? See : thenubbyadmin.com/2014/04/28/…

I think you've missed the essence of the question. Exploiting a machine from within the network (which is what you're referring to) is not what OP is asking about. They're asking about remote administration access, ie directly accessing the router via an INPUT rule and not a FORWARD rule to a compromised workstation
