Hi, yesterday Brave needed to be updated on my Windows machine, I did the update and then Webroot flagged it up as a virus:
Infection detected: c:\users[username]\appdata\local\brave\brave.exe [W32.Worm.Gen]
File blocked in realtime: c:\users[username]\appdata\local\brave\brave.exe [W32.Worm.Gen]
Webroot automatically deleted brave.exe so I uninstalled Brave via ‘Add remove programs’ and then tried to reinstall with a new installer from brave.com only to have the exact same problem happen.
Does the latest brave.exe contain a virus?? A bit worrying if so, or has Webroot incorrectly started to flag brave.exe up as a virus? And if that’s the case why would that be?
A search on Twitter indicates there are a few other users in the same situation as me with Brave + Webroot.
