The insert key on your keyboard has been pressed (INS on some keyboards).
What this does is toggle between text-entering modes.
Overwrite mode where any characters input will replace the current character at the cursors position.
Insert mode where any character input will push the next character one foward.
Think of it like an array, you can either add data and push the rest of the array foward or replace the current data in the array.
