On my Mac OS X, I checked the running processes using the activity monitor and noticed a process called mount_webdav. I googled it, but couldn't find anything related to any security threat, but it looks like some sort of remote desktop program? I never installed this on my Mac and I am wondering if I have a security problem?

I am new to Mac computers btw.
