but it could also be something more sinister.


Well, yes - it *could* be something sinister. But if so, it's a pretty incompetent job of it - the files don't seem to have been obfuscated or any attempt made to protect them from prying eyes, they're just not in the obvious place they should be. No conspiracies here.
