Even Latest version of WordPress also have these kind of pages with the comment “Silence is golden” What does it mean. Before explaining I will show you the wired comment.

// Silence is golden.

And the wired thing is this is the fresh downloaded latest version WordPress.

The main aim of these kind of wiered comment is to make sure that the listing of files of the directory they are located is not shown in server configuration. These are harmless but not malware that some claims.
