It looks like some function inside that DLL is being invoked using the Rundll32.exe. Very high probability of a malware.
The entryname and the filename are both chosen randomly so nothing can be said by just looking at the name.
You should report to the Am I Infected section.

RunDLL32.exe is a legitimate Windows file that executes/loads .dll (Dynamic Link Library) modules which too can be legitimate or sometimes malware related.

As Romeo29 points out, the entryname and the filename are both random and there is no info on that .dll which is indicative of probable malware infection.
