I've been trying to figure out why my network adapter kext is chewing up so much memory and just noticed this in my settings > network interfaces

MT65xx preloader

Anyone know what this is? Looks like some sort of Android interface, but I don't use anything like that.

Could this be related to, or possibly an indication of a system compromise to a virus, etc?

You can just Delete it and it will bring no problem
