Found this little guy on my glass tonight.  I pulled him just to be safe.  Based on what I have read these are bad right?  Help me INDMAS experts...you’re my only hope!  😁

Some will eat coral yes. But some just multiply rapidly and become an eye sore.

I have had those before and they did not seem to hurt anything (well, I don't "think" they did anything).  Here is an article from reef keeping magazine on the subject:   http://reefkeeping.com/joomla/index.php/current-issue/article/45-reefkeeping-101-

Mine weren’t a problem for a couple years but their numbers eventually reached a point where it was unsustainable. The ones in my tank seemed to feed on the GSP, which helped keep that in check. But eventually, they all but wiped out the gsp. Got a couple harlequin shrimp, one for the tank and one for the sump. Six months later, I’m having to harvest GSP. No asterina at all. Passed the shrimp along to someone else in need. Nearly a year later, still no asterina, so the shrimp clearly did a thorough job.
