I'm not very technical but does that mean the Vodafone router has a security flaw and a hacker could get access to my network and computers etc

What I think of that is:  That it is likely while modifying the router firmware someone forgot to suppress certain boot messages.  I would imagine that standard remote access to the router is not enabled, but the message is to do with the TR-069 protocol which almost certainly is enabled and allows settings on the router to be managed remotely.  Whether standard remote access is enabled should be pretty easy to test (ON YOUR OWN ROUTER ONLY)!
