Possible malware called FISE in Accessibility (Privacy & Security)


I checked my Mac's security and privacy and noticed this entry FISE. When I click Show in Finder nothing happens. I've googled around and found no mention of it at all outside of spammy sites.

Before I unchecked this software it had "control my computer" access. I recently upgraded to Mojave, so it's possible this is an old program (this is on a 2012 Mac) which I had previously granted accessibility access to. However I don't recall doing so.

I did find one reputable mention of FISE, in a technical paper from 2010. I don't know if that is it. Given what the "control my computer" permission enables I'm pretty concerned that its a form of mal/spyware.

Has anyone else has ever seen this program FISE on their mac?

EDIT – including screenshot of the FISE

^ as mentioned when I click Show in Finder nothing happens

I found the same thing on my Mac and it seems it's and Android File Transfer app bundled with Wacom driver software for some reason https://www.reddit.com/r/wacom/comments/7m7pib/wacom_without_bloatware/
