Downloading Brave is blocked by Bitdefender

I tried to download Brave from onto my desktop PC and my anti-virus software, Bitdefender Total Security blocked it, claimed it contains a threat.

\Downloads\Unconfirmed 513825.crdownload is infected with Gen:Variant.Ulise.139849. The threat has been successfully blocked, your device is safe

Is this a threat or can it be ignored, override Bitdefender and continue the download?

Description of the issue:
How can this issue be reproduced?

Expected result:

Brave Version( check About Brave):

Additional Information:

If you’re getting it from the official website – – then there’s nothing to worry about and you are free to ignore the threat and proceed with the download.

It’s a false positive.
