what is FNPLicensingService.exe?

Malwarebytes is flagging this every two minutes: Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Macrovision Shared\FlexNet Publisher\FNPLicensingService.exe. Anyone know why? It appears to be something related, maybe, to Acrobat. It just started this morning. The only modification to anything on my computer, ASFAIK, is a Windows Update yesterday.

Thanks

Hi Greenbergman2.

Same thing is happening to me, as of a few hours ago, nothing newly installed here either apart from a Windows Update the day before. I opened up the XML file and found that there was something referencing 'Autodesk' in it. That makes sense as I own a version of their software called Maya. I have known licensing software (particularly Autodesk's) to cause and flag up issues before and as FNPLicensingService.exe is a licensing software it checks out on my end to be legit to me, so I have added it to my Exclusions list. 

Just wanted to share that with you until someone more experienced or a member of staff can get back to you with clarification or more details.

Same here. Every two minutes.

I've tracked it down to Final Draft 11 on my system by opening the XML file.

I tested by stopping the FlexNet Publishing Service via Task Manager, deleting the files, and then Final Draft 11 refused to launch because the service was unavailable.

I think this is a False Positive on the part of MalwareBytes.

Doing the exact same thing with me. Ran adware cleaner and several rounds of MBAM. Nothing. 
 

Just checked the XML and it references Autodesk, and I have Fusion360 installed, so it’s either a false positive or their service has been compromised and it really is blocking a Trojan. Hopefully it can be resolved soon.

Hey guys, I just wanted to let you know that this appears to be a false positive and I've requested that this thread be moved to the appropriate area for confirmation and correction by the Research team.

Thanks. That’s good news to hear it’s probably nothing actually malicious. Hopefully the experts can check and make sure.

 

Thanks.
