I ran it, because I found a link to it on a bitcoin wiki, and expected it to be legitimate. Yes I know a wiki can be edited by anyone, I should have done more research.

Subsequently the java DiabloMiner based on m0mchil's was created by Diablo-D3[3]. OptDiabloMinerII, an optimized fork has also been developed by Alex Gonzalez. [4]

I've seen a few posts talking about this miner, and that it could be malware. Does anyone know exactly what it does?

The system I ran it on had an empty wallet and I've since formatted it, so no harm done, hopefully.

Here are some other threads about this miner, but it looks like after the code on GitHub got closed the developer moved over to sourceforge:

The original GitHub page (now closed): https://github.com/speedygonzalez/OptDiabloMinerII
The new SourceForge home: http://sourceforge.net/projects/optdiablominer/

Pretty sure it's a wallet stealer.

Hmm, maybe it should be removed from the Bitcoin Wiki, I see that Mr Speedygonzalez added those entries himself:
