    Recently two totally random files were uploaded, apparently from my iPad, to Dropbox. I didn't even look at anything related to either file. It doesn't worry me, just seems really bizarre.

    .dmg files are like .isos.
    If you open them, you can install the respective programs held inside. I don't know why they randomly appeared, but I would think that an iOS app wanted you to run them on your Mac. If you don't intend to install GIMP or the other program, just delete them.

    It's possible that they could be trojan horses, but I doubt it. Just delete them if you know that you don't need them, no worries.

    I know exactly what each file is, I'm just totally at a loss as to where they came from.:confused:
