I opened my console and saw this...

Mac OS X Version 10.3.9 (Build 7W98)
2005-08-18 18:25:10 +0200
2005-08-18 18:25:12.688 SymQuickMenu[273] Could not communicate with Personal Firewall daemon!
2005-08-18 18:25:12.689 SymQuickMenu[273] Could not communicate with Personal Firewall daemon!
TWAINBridge-ERROR: DS does not support the required CAP_SUPPORTEDCAPS

anybody knows whar this means and what i can do about it.
Because although im a veteran mac user
I start feeling non secure.

Can anybody give me some tips to check if i'm being hacked?

It appears (as already posted), that you're using Symantec Personal Firewall. Sounds like the firewall daemon is crashed. A restart should fix this. If not, a reinstall.. or better yet, not using Symantec products with OS X.

There's no indication that you've been "hacked".. of course, there's no indication that you have not. Do you have a router with a hardware firewall? If not, and you're concerned about security, then this should be your first line of defense.
