For what it’s worth hd5s1 sounds to me like a SATA device name. I’m not sure it helps you, but that suggests a system or application error to me rather than malware.

Two perfectly good MacBookPro’s in my office, crashed at the same time and I got the question mark on restart. Inserting the system disk as boot disk and then running the disk utility showed that both macs had a new start up disk called HD5s1s. The HD5s1s was showing as a MS_DOS disk and was not visable on my desktop. I erased this disk and all seems fine, however, I have noticed that my key strokes are not always accurate, Mail and Safari have crashed often and I am expecting another visit. Still tracking it down as of this writing, I have some leads as both computers had just exchanged about ten files, will post when I find the file.

It is urgent for Windows and OS X users to be aware of the cross platform threats.
While most companies realize the malware threat against Windows computers, on many company LAN's the OS X computers are left without a strong and solid security software like ESET Cybersecurity for Mac.
