Avast Ping Virus for Node.js

Was downloading node.js dependencies from the legit site and avast pinged a threat name IDP.ALEXA.53%s_cmd in powershell.exe. I also noticed when hybrid analysis ran it on their VM that it was attempting to look up devices on the network. I’ve found a few posts about this virus tag being a false positive lately, however none have been through powershell.exe. Any help is appreciated.
