Node.js Command Prompt being blocked, "Exploit payload processed blocked"

Recommended Posts

Today when I open Node.js Command Prompt on Windows, Malwarebytes blocks it with the information that appears at the end of this message.

The target of the Node.js Command Prompt shortcut is: C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe /k "C:\Program Files\nodejs\nodevars.bat"

I have used this for months and today it comes up and is blocked and closes immediately. Repeated attempts result in the same behavior.

What is the deal?
