It can safely be deleted if you have disk space shortage, or don't
care to debug them.  In fact, in my $HOME/.logout file I search for
core files using the find command and delete them.

Generally a core file is debugged in conjunction with the binary
that has not been stripped of it's debugging symbols.  Not sure how you
got your binary - whether you compiled it with the "-g" flag to allow
debugging or if you got a precompiled version which might not.

The 'file core' command should tell you which program dumped core,
but that might depend on the version of 'file' you use.

If it's a bug you can reproduce, it would be worthwhile to report it
