Brave's go-ipfs Trojan via MalwareBytes

MalwareBytes pops up Trojan warning on almost every website, due to a file used by Brave, Chrome Canary and Chrome [Version 1.47.171 Chromium: 109.0.5414.87 (Official Build) (64-bit)] … C:\users\chris\appdata\local\bravesoftware\brave-browser\user data\lnbclahgobmjphilkalbhebakmblnbij\1.0.19\go-ipfs_v0.17.0_windows-amd64

Has anyone else noticed this?

Yep, mine started doing this yesterday. MalwareBytes is triggering over and over as I use Brave Nightly. The non-beta Brave seems not to trigger anything for now at least.

Disable IPFS in Brave. It has its own tab in Brave, so obviously Brave seems very inspired by it, but it seems to make Malwarebytes very nervous.

I’ve been getting similar notifications from Kapersky
