I did some research and it says that some Adobe products and the Safari browser use this file. It has major uses with "Version Cue".

Although it appears some PS uses really dont like it.

MDNSResponder is part of Apple's Bonjour, which is a technology to allow home networks without any configuration needed (and yes, it does work). There are many ways to get it, including downloading and installing it yourself (Mac OS X has it by default). It's not harmful in any way.
