While searching on my Hostwinds webserver for a specific file, I noticed some files in a website root directory that I did not put there. Those files are:

D60ED30DA1AF9F372DEA37DB0BA959CD.txt with contents:
Some google-fu revealed that comodoca.com redirects to comodo's website, which I know is legitimate, but the presence of the files when I did not create them is suspicious. Further, the website whose root they are in is an add-on domain not contained within the public_html directory, and it is very strange to me that someone would break into the server (on two occasions almost 24 hours apart) and put two text files in such a basically trivial location. Has anyone had any experiences with something similar in the past? I'm more confused than anything else.
