Brave software update is trying to change the System Behavior for executable files

While installing Brave web browser I received a warning from Zone Alarm which in all the years I’ve been using it I have never received this warning from any other piece of software: “Brave software update is trying to change the System Behavior for executable files” Can anybody tell me what exactly Brave is doing by changing the behavior for executable files?

Hi @rlwieneke,

Welcome to community! Thanks for reaching out.

In an effort to narrow down the issue, is this the first time that you’ve installed Brave or did you recently update? If it was a recent update, were Brave Rewards enabled?

Thank you!

steeven, this is the first time I was installing Brave.

Seeing as nobody has provided an explanation to this possible SECURITY RISK I won’t be installing Brave web browser until such a time as I do NOT get a warning that “Brave software update is trying to change the System Behavior for executable files” during the install process on a future version.
