Hello,

As the name suggests /tmp (is a directory which is world writable) is a temporary directory. /tmp directory in Unix or Linux is used by programs/applications to store intermediate or temporary files. In many systems every so often /tmp directory is cleaned up automatically that deletes most of the unused files (not accessed). In any default installation of Linux (that I know of) you would not get any files.

Chances are that your previous installation of Linux that you used had a file /tmp/cf.x that somehow got there (somehow meaning somebody copied it) and then you just used it from that location.
