Panic Attack

I’ve been working for quite some time on a new image for our lab computers. Today I was finishing up some last minute touches before I made version 3. I noticed that there was this Unix Executable File in the /Library/Application Support folder called SilentPlayer.

Now, I don’t know about you, but I’ve never seen that before and it sounds pretty ominous to me. So, I opened up Terminal and started checking it out. For all intensive purposes, the file seemed blank. So, I did a quick search for it and here’s what I found:

As it turns out, this is some sort of weird Macromedia file (the serial # in the resource fork follows the patterns of Macromedia serials). I deleted it. But now I’m just scratching my head wondering what the hell they were thinking by creating a file like that. Are they trying to give me a panic attack?
