So i just got back on my computer and as soon as it came out of sleep i saw this message. Iv never seen it before and the name Lulsec in the message box stuck out to me. all i did was hit the "X" in the corner and it went away, but im kinda worried about it. im bout to scan my system using clam, but figured id see if anyone else had any insight on this message.

LulzSec is the correct spelling...

I highly doubt the now imfamous, and disbanded hacktivist group really was that interested in your personal Facebook, or your system in general. If you read their list of achievements you will realize they dump databases , yielding thousands of passwords at once. Compromising Facebook passwords one user at a time seems...Well a little amateur for them.

I think someone is probably screwing with you.

^This.
That's the window that appears if someone sitting at your box leaves you a message after you've locked the screen.
