Is KBSERVICE.SHUTDOWN a legitimate file, distributed by the K1000?

This has surfaced on a few workstations as C:\KBSERVICE.SHUTDOWN.

We do not recognize this.

  • Thanks for the answer. I do want to seek more information about what that file specifically does, and why it was observed on only a few workstations. That would be the answer to the question posted 11/29/2015 linked here. If I can determine this, I will post to that thread.

yes it is a legitimate file. Sometimes the agent takes some 'notes' about the status of some operation using empty files as markers.
