can a computer be hacked fom a java chat

March 2, 2018 at 12:17:53
Specs: Windows 10
I was in an adult java chat room with no registration needed. I have been using it for years, never with my real name and never giving specifics on me and my life. Few days ago I was chatting as usual when I logged off by mistake. when I logged in again, there was a chat room with the name of my company in it. I found it very odd ; it was relating though to a geographical area miles away from where I am based. The chances of somebody using the name of this company is quite low. It is a global company but not very known to the main public. I have no work files in my pc. But clearly I have files where you can get this information. Can someone have accessed my pc and created the room?
I use McAfee antivirus and it was updated however after a scan I found JTI/suspect.13107617946622ed764d

Most of the helpers here would NOT recommend McAfee. See response #1 in the following thread. Download, install, & run the 1st three programs listed.

Could be one of you colleagues?
perhaps someone at work overheard you talking about a chat program and started using it him/herself. Could be because he/she did not know about different chat room's, but only knew your specific chat application because that's al he/she knew.

he/she is using the company name to get your attention?
maby a friend from work or a guy that secretly likes you perhaps?
or maby just a spooky coincidence?

unless more "coincidences" happen i wouldn't freak out.
