safety – Mac Os X Hacked? Unknown Username in Terminal!

I lately seen an uncommon “username” showing in my Terminal window.
Normally once I open Terminal I see one thing like this:

Ryans-MacBook-Professional:~ ryan$

However lately once I’ve logged on I see this:

GIS-NicoDellLaptop:~ ryan$

That is fairly unusual to me, and I do not keep in mind seeing it earlier than. I do not know anybody named Nico, and I do not personal a Dell laptop computer.

If I flip off my web, and run the command “exit bash”, then I open a brand new Terminal window, I see what is anticipated: Ryans-MacBook-Professional:~ ryan$

But, as quickly as I connect with the web, once I open a Terminal window, I once more see:
GIS-NicoDellLaptop:~ ryan$

If I “exit bash” once more and open a brand new terminal window, it stays there. I can solely do away with it by utilizing “exit bash” if I am disconnected from the web.

Distant Login, Display screen Sharing, Distant Administration are OFF.

Utilizing this command: dscl . listing /Customers | grep -v ‘^_’

I see that there are no new customers which were created on the system.

Nonetheless I do see over 800 entries within the system.log file associated to GIS-NicoDellLap.

Any assistance is drastically appreciated,
