Are you touching the keyboard at all when the random characters appear?

The keys being entered seem too far apart from one another to be something sticking the keys down, but have you spilled something on your keyboard recently?

Do you have another keyboard that you can plug in to test?

How long has this been happening? Could anything have happened recently to explain it?

I wouldn't jump straight to it being a virus just yet. ;)

I would find another keyboard and plug it in, see what happens when you type with that.

EDIT: Hang on a minute! How are you typing these replies? Does this issue only happen in Facebook chat?

Ah, ok. Well it would be a bit difficult to be able to tell you why it happened if we can't replicate the issue again.

If you are on a mobile, try to change the keyboard... you can get third party keyboard based on your phone..

 

if you have iPhone, you will need to take it to the phone store that they have tools to debug it.

 

Otherwise if you are on desktop or tablet, run virus/malware scan and see if you got infected.

 

Edit... damn you are fast.. lol   good to see you got it fixed.

Some keyboards have media keys, when not configured correctly, they misbehave. My old Turbo Spero used to do that (had to unplug/replug it to fix it)
