# Has my computer been hacked

I'm trying to find out if someone has hacked my computer. In case I get the following message in my Terminal window: "Last login: Tue Sep 30 02:02:18 on console" does that mean a person has logged in, or could it be an automatic programme running?

• If your computer were hacked, you would probably have seen an ip address instead of console. I don't know what console means though, mine shows TTY## instead – LaX Sep 30 '14 at 11:03

• I'd be curious to see your uptime (type that command into a bash prompt and see what it says. Is it possible that your system rebooted around that time? System Update or some such? – Trane Francks Sep 30 '14 at 11:50
