Brave replaces the valid link with a phishing URL

Brave replaces the link with phishing URL
Type ( in address bar

  1. When I follow the "Launch App"link on the official site the Brave browser replaced the correct link with scam phishing link
    The same happens when I insert the correct link into the address bar and press Enter.
    The antivirus software is triggering and don’t allow to access phishing URL
  2. Disabled all extensions. No effect.
  3. Other browsers on the same PC (Chrome, Firefox) open the valid URL.

Expected result:
Force Brave to use open link user provide. Don’t replace the valid link with phishing link.

Brave Version( check About Brave):
Version 1.59.124 Chromium: 118.0.5993.117 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Additional Information:

You should review your Web3 settings in Brave. I don’t think this is a phishing site and your antivirus software is just crap. Most AV software is.

Brave isn’t redirecting you to phishing website, it’s redirecting you to the IPFS version of the website.

More about IPFS sites:

You can completely disable IPFS in the browser settings (under Web3) if you don’t want to use the feature.
