Possible security threat? File with Chinese characters

Hi Norton Forum,

  I just discovered a file in the documents folder of my Windows 10 pc with Chinese characters for the name that I don't recall ever being there.  The file is dated a couple of months ago and, according to its properties, has not been accessed or modified since.  I added a .txt extension and opened it with notepad; the file contains a neat list of all the files and folders in the documents folder, listed by their file paths, along with their name and two numbers separated by a colon.  Any idea what this is?
