I turned on my computer this afternoon and was met with this message:


"This computer's local hostname "Name of my hard drive.local" is already in use on this network.  The name has been changed to "The name of my hard drive-2.local"

To change the local hostname, open System Preferences and click Sharing, then click "Edit" and type the name in the Local Hostname field."


Can anyone tell me why is this happening?  I've never seen this before.  Has my computer been compromised?
