Photoshop CC infected with a virus called “Node.exe”
April 3, 2015
What is this ‘Node.exe’ thing? Sounds scary! Or so the innocent user thinks. Sue me for enjoying the occasional sensationalist headline, but it’s a legitimate comment about randomly including software and NOT explaining yourself. Fortunately for me, I know what it is, but a lot of users don’t. Adobe has, to the best I can tell, started to include NodeJS in Photoshop and possibly other apps from their suite. It’s a legitimate copy signed by Joyent, so the likelihood of being a virus is close to nil, however there are a lot of users with this same node.
