Firstly, just check if dpkg -S turns up anything. If not it'll probably be by a
postinst or something. Next look in /var/lib/dpkg/info. The dates on the
files there are when the packages were last installed. Try finding the files
with the nearest matching dates.

Yeah. Not good this is. Looks to me like a shell script with $VAL/.memdump
where $VAL was not defined.
Another possibility, search your filesystem with find to see if there are
any other similarly named files. Maybe rgrep also?
