    The reason this concerns me is I run Windows 7 via Bootcamp, however I never downloaded anything. This just suddenly started popping up on Mavericks when I look at my local network list.

    Is this something to worry about? Or just some fool who picked the stupidest name for a network in my area?

    It's just some clown's choice for a network name. It poses no threat whatsoever.

    nope, nothing to worry about. It's just their way of saying "don't try to figure out my password or else".

    At one time, I lived in an apartment complex where I saw the following WiFi networks in my list:

    Skynet
