Infection of Brave or...?

Everytime I start Brave it “calls” the adress: and my antivirus reacts. This site is unsecure and I have tried Firefox with in the address line and the antivirus blocks the site. I have deleted history and cookies, deaktivated the Bitdefender extensions I have but, scanned the Pc for malware and virus but nothing was found.

Am I the only one with this problem?

Hi @knagsted, welcome to Community!

Can you try going to:

and downloading the standalone setup for Windows.
Either BraveBrowserStandaloneSetup.exe or BraveBrowserStandaloneSetup32.exe depending on you machine.

This one I believe is when the browser check for an update.

I have installed the BraveBrowserStandaloneSetup.exe. Now I just have to wait and see.

No it is the same.

I’m using

Version 1.5.115 Chromium: 80.0.3987.149 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Is it the latest version?

Brave is working without errors with my VPN activated.


I have the same. Initially, my antivirus reported that it was targeting ‘-’, then it was ‘system idle process’ and now we’re back to ‘-’.

If I go into Brave -> About, it appears that I’m running the latest version.

Brave is up to date
[Version 1.5.115 Chromium: 80.0.3987.149 (Official Build) (64-bit)]

Clearing cookies does not fix the problem.

PS. First report was on the 22 of March.
