Well...I would not be so quick to convert anything...that file extension doesn't seem related to music/video files.

False file extensions is an old malware trick...may apply here.

Samsung MTA

Samsung uses MTA files as part of its PC Share Manager software. This software allows you to connect certain HDTV models to your computer to share audio and video files. If you have this software installed on your computer, the MTA files most likely are from Samsung's software, and deleting them may interfere with your entertainment system's operation.


oh, thanks for this!

i actually just got a samsung phone... how can i be 100% sure it is not something malicious though? just scan it with malwarebytes?

If I wanted to be confident...I would initiate a post at Am I infected What do I do - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/forum103.html .

I can move this to that forum, if that is your desire.
