Unknown file or directory in home - cryptic name - can't remove [closed]

asked 2019-01-21 07:07:36 -0500


I've found two unknown files or folders in my home directory and I can't think of what could have produced those files/folders. I can't even remove them.

I can't upload pictures yet, so I'm stuck to text. In my home directory there are these two files which I don't know:

➜  ~ ls -l
drwxr-xr-x. 2 tom tom 4096 17. Jan 18:44 ''$'\200''M*'$'\327''EV'
drwxr-xr-x. 2 tom tom 4096 16. Jan 00:07 'P'$'\352'

Everything else seems quite normal.

Any hint what could have cause these files to appear and how to remove them?
