    So i went on my macbook today, and saw that the HD was renamed to "hehehe"...I initially assumed it was one of my roommates messing with me, but it seems like a pointless prank, and nobody admitted to it...plus, i doubt they would know how. So my question is, and i know this probably sounds stupid, but is it possible for someone to access my computer through the internet or something? Did somebody hack me?

    Unless you share your root directory to the internet or have screen sharing to set to allow every incoming connection from the internet, which is kinda hard, the name was changed by you by accident or one of your flatmates has done it. That's the easier explanation.

    I'd start by grilling the roommates a bit harder.

    It's not on by default.

    System Preferences > Sharing

    In any case, they would need to have your computer's admin password.
