Malaware One click links exist

Description of the issue:
One of the links I was looking into (ATEMPTED) to auto start a download on a malicious virus
How can this issue be reproduced?

I have the link to the website shown in the image, be aware it was blocked by my computer, I do not recommend going there

  1. Open brave
  2. Look up what I looked up
  3. Click the specific link and have no background in coding
  4. get jumped by an auto download

Expected result:
4. not getting jumped by an auto download
5. a way to report a malicious website from the browser

Brave Version( check About Brave):

Additional Information:
PREFACES- yes I understand how works (Brave auto downloads from there sometimes as well) and why people SHOULDNT have access to malicious reporting websites (see: wasted manpower), but still this felt absurd as a complete idiot that I have “shields up” in the standard mode and could have still gotten a virus

Hi there @GraniteShield thanks for sharing this information. Could you please provide me with your Brave and Windows version? In the meantime, make sure that on brave://settings/downloads you have Ask where to save each file before downloading option enabled.

Be waiting for your response.

Hi again @GraniteShield are you still experiencing this same issue or has it been resolved.
