    It's not an application. It's a container. It might contain anything.

    A .dmg file is just a convenient way of packaging-up a bunch of files. Like a .zip, only it's OSX-specific.

    You can look inside the container with Finder.

    While applications often come packaged in a .dmg, it could be any kind of collection of files. Like a homework assignment. Or a backup of a directory.

    There's no reason to expect to find a match on the web any more than you would find a match for any random file name.

    Google Translate tells me, it's French: "rights to 306"

    Now, cover your eyes, and peek between your fingers ... nosy Mom! ;)

    LOL, is he some kind of Finance student?
