Odd name coming up in my network. Not my device.

I have recently been playing a game through Hamachi with a friend. My networks looked all normal last night, then suddenly when I wake up I have a well...err odd one connected. Now I inform you that there's is only 2 of us in the Hamachi network. My computer is 'Derick', my friends is 'Sam' my school laptop is 'PaCyber' now there is another, I am certain neither of us have actually connected. My wifi does not have a password, I have yet to try and add one. But hopefully someone can give me some insight on what's actually wrong here...

1. Is this a wired or wireless connection issue? - N/A

2. Who is your Internet Service Provider (ISP)? - Comcast

3. What type of Broadband connection are you using? - Cable

4. What is the exact Make and Model of your Modem, Router or Modem/Router Combo - Netgear

5. What is the Name of the Anti-Virus, Security or Firewall Software installed from the problematic computer - Avast Anti Virus, and Comodo firewall

I have included an image below...

I would definitely set up a password on your wi-fi, you are just letting anyone in range connect to your router.

With a name like "IHEARTPORN" I would be shutting down access to everything and starting over.

My thoughts exactly. Well I added my Wifi password back and tried to click on the network and I get an error saying path is not found for it. Success. Now if only I knew who it was.... xD

A lover of porn obviously.

You should run a few malware scans and with your AV as well.

Malwarebytes is highly regarded,
