Sophos AV reports "Generic Reputation PUA" in Brave

HUNDREDS of reports from Sophos Intercept-X AV about Brave and a “Generic Reputation PUA” in the software. Anyone else getting this?

Yes. I got a few.
here’s what the alert means:

I ‘think’ it’s ok. It just thinks that it’s potentially unwanted application.

Seems to be an updater, not the browser itself, the one I got an alert for was at the following location (on a windows machine): BraveSoftware\Update\Install{2645EE09-B020-47E6-B6C3-C9A7C29FA045}\brave_installer-delta-x64.exe

If in doubt, make sure that the brave version is the latest, and you can probably delete this file safely if you’re concerned.
