Exclamation Phone suddenly PUK locked?

All right guys, I've got a bit of a problem here.
I'm running a Rooted Insipre with 4.0.3. I don't know anything about rooting and my friend did this for me, so all I know is it's most likely using ClockWorkMod if I'm looking at this right.
The problem is: I enabled the SIM card lock, so whenever I turned on my phone the first thing it would do after boot is ask for a PIN to unlock my password. About maybe a month later, today, I woke up and booted my phone to find now it was asking for an 8-digit PUK code along with a 'New Pin Code'.
I have no idea what a PUK code even is and I never set it.
I've gotten to the point of having factory reset my phone and it's still asking for both codes.

Thanks in advance for your help!
