Thank you for accepting me into your community…I love my MAC but I do not understand why TERMINAL suddenly appeared open with commands….

The commands posted below are more important than the ones posted yesterday.

Please let me know if the message below expressed in TERMINAL means that someone has hacked in to my MacBook Pro. Please advise on procedures to follow.

Look at the Terminal's Preferences.

Settings > Shell > Startup

Is there anything there?

Thank you for responding to my concern:

Start up
(ticked) Run Command: bash
also selected is: Run Inside shell

When the shell exists:
Don't close this window

Prompt before closing:
(radio button) Only if there are other processes other than:
rlogin
telnet
ssh
slogin

Kind regards

Just to ease your concerns, the output tells us that something is trying to execute the Java runtime but isn't telling it to run anything specific. As such, the Java runtime is complaining that it was told to run but wasn't told what to execute.

What applications have you installed lately? It's possible that something uses Java to function properly.

Thank you VanSmith for addressing my concern: I use open office that is Java baesd, and I had installed a scanner program that I deleted upon reading your post. Other than that I have only installed two bluetooth items a new Mac Keyboard and Mouse.
Also I have tried to delete using terminal ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.Terminal.plist but reply said that I did not have permission.

Thanks, Sky

You're deleting the wrong one - you need to go to your home directory > Library > Preferences to get the plist.
