What is a KCMSF file?

A KCMSF file is a PHP script, JavaScript script, or other web-related file used by the website of the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), which is North Korea's state news agency. KCMSF files are most notable for being suspected of serving malware to users who visit the KCNA's website. If you encounter a KCMSF file, delete it.

More Information

In 2015, a security researcher discovered that KCNA's website served a malware file named FlashPlayer10.zip to visitors. The file was served via kcna.user.exploit.exploit.kcmsf, which was a KCMSF file that contained a JavaScript script.

Most likely, KCMSF is the extension that KCNA uses for all its website's scripts. A website's scripts can use any file extension, as long as the extension is assigned and used appropriately. So, not all KCMSF files may contain malicious scripts. However, it is best to assume that they do.

How do I open a KCMSF file?

Do not open a KCMSF file. Instead, immediately delete the file.
