Description of the issue:
The latest version of Brave triggers multiple virus warnings.
After updating to version Version 1.2.43 Chromium: 79.0.3945.130 (Official Build) (64-bit)
Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
I cannot reproduce as my antivirus cleans and removes each infection it finds. This started after the latest update. I only use this web browser for normal business stuff. I don’t visit social media, entertainment, or such websites. Simply business related.
Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
Brave should not be using code, extensions, updates, etc. that would be detected for viruses, expolits, etc.
Reproduces how often:
Random - Whenever Brave updates something in the background.
Operating System and Brave Version(See the
About Brave page in the main menu):
Version 1.2.43 Chromium: 79.0.3945.130 (Official Build) (64-bit) - Windows 7 Professional 64Bit
Antivirus advises removal as it flags some Brave related files as “Legitimate software that can be used by criminals to damage your computer or personal data” - This tells me that Brave is opening the potential to expose private data and also exposing user systems to potential harm. This only happened after the latest start-up of Brave (yesterday and today), and Brave normally silently updating some files, as it checks for updates. Brave should fix this issues ASAP.
