    I think my credit card details have been compromised. I've contacted the bank and fixed things at that end, now I need to know it wasn't because of my computer system. I've got details from my mac but don't know how to interpret:

    *meggison is me, and l* is my son, but I don't know the one above him and the two inbetween - could these be hackers?

    I have now locked down any incoming permissions via the firewall as well.

    Thanks in advance!!!

    Nobody and Root? It's highly unlikely they are the culprits but if you haven't already checked your accounts there might be something there that's not a hack....I've seen OSX create permissions like that before, so running a permissions check via Disk Utility might reveal something, but I doubt that the compromise has come from your Mac.

    No, your Mac has not been hacked. Of all the claims I've seen in this forum and elswehere over the past 6 years that "My Mac was hacked!", not a single one ever was.

    Your financial information can be compromised in a myriad of ways, whether you own a computer or not. It has nothing to do with your Mac.

    "root" and "nobody" are users created by OS X to perform specific functions. They do not represent people, and they are part of the normal operation of your Mac.
