If it really has the extension .txt you have nothing to worry about. Delete it

This text file is not a virus, but a text about a back dooring a machine through a firewall. The text DOES contain code that your anti-virus (assuming you running some) will detect and set off an alert. To remove the text, simply delete it and you should be fine. Not dumb, just a fasle alarm.
