Windows Security found "Trojan Downloader"

Description of the issue: A Windows Security alert popped up stating it found a threat. On looking into the details, it says it found a Trojan Downloader inside this directory:
C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\BraveSoftware\Brave-Browser\User Data\Default\Cache\Cache_Data\

Is there any way for me to identify where this file came from? I.e., what site I got it from, so I know to avoid that page in the future?

How can this issue be reproduced? N/A, I have no idea where it came from.

Brave Version: 1.62.165

Additional Information: I attempted to upload a screenshot of the Windows Security threat details, but I keep getting “Sorry, an error has occurred.” The pic is only 71 KB, so the size shouldn’t be an issue. Let me know if there’s a way to upload pics here, and I’d be glad to try.
