I received the following alert from my antivirus software after clicking on an ad sent to me at 11:58 AM EST:
"An infected file attempted to run on your device.
Threat name: JS:Trojan.Cryxos.2870
Path: /Users/sengravalle/Library/Caches/BraveSoftware/Brave-Browser/Profile 4/Cache/b72c0372b38e2f10_0=>(REMOVED_NULLS)=>(INFECTED_JS)
We deleted the file to prevent malicious commands from being executed on your device."
Description of the issue:
JS:Trojan.Cryxos.2870 triggered from Brave Rewards ad click on Mac OS.
How can this issue be reproduced?
- Click similar ads.
- Received a second similar alert on another Brave profile as well
No Trojans from an ad click
