Ransomware Protected Blocked changes

Suddenly get this error when publishing in Storyline and Presenter 360. I get several notifications for several files created during publishing.

Is this related to the WannaCry attack?

Is it safe to add as trusted application?

If is it safe and added as trusted, do I need to republish?

Hi Steve, 

node.exe is a legitimate part of our publishing process - so you're safe to use it. I suspect that your anti-malware software may be on high alert after the issues with the WannaCry issue - so I'd ask them if they can add node.exe as a trusted option? 

Our team can also look at reporting it to BitDefender as a false positive.
