Suspicious file? passback-1.js automatically downloaded without update request?

So, I got this notification today on my Xperia Z saying
Passback-1.js
Download complete

Now I got this with absolutely no update request at all from my end and I hadn't also recently installed any new app from the PlayStore

Just holding down on the notification to see the App Info says ' Download Manager 4.2.2. something

Google search shows absolutely nothing on this file and I was wondering if anyone else got this or know if it's a legit file?

C6602 running 4.2.2 Build number: 10.3.1.A.0.244

Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

Yeah, figured by the.js extension.
Is there any way for any one to see what's inside this JavaScript and what it does.
So weird! And my antivirus isn't picking up anything on it either!

Edit: Just wanted to add, I think the file I got has a suffix -1 because the first time it downloaded I just disregarded the download without clicking on it. Which means it persistently downloaded the file again and renamed it to passback-1.js
If I remember correctly the first file that was downloaded is the same name as attached (passback.js)

The same behavior. Noticed today downloaded passback.js and passback-1.js.
Samsung Galaxy S4 (stock firmware).
I didn't install any new software recently.
And no information on Internet.

Two Websites here,

One points to an ad on a forum on bf-france

And the other is some project called powerpass on google code.

I'm on CM 10.2 and never got this.
