Hello,

I tried to reproduce the problem on my test PC, downloaded the last version of Brave browser: 1.3.99.0 from: https://brave.com/

installed, but the problem did not reproduce. Probably it was a false detection, which has already been fixed.

If anyone still has this issue, please create the request via https://my.kaspersky.com/

Please provide the following data to us:

1. Setup.exe file of Brave browser in archive with password: virus.

2. GSI-report: https://support.kaspersky.com/3632

3. Traces with the detection reproduction: https://support.kaspersky.com/14550

Thank you.

 

Hi Mikhail Shakhov, if your test was limited to Brave browser: 1.3.99.0 then it's not comprehensive. Please reference the following:

As per Brave Support:

quote "Brave Support were recently notified by Kaspersky that they’ve scanned all the necessary binaries and cleared Brave as “safe”. Brave Support understand (from Kaspersky) that the fix should apply to any and all release channels/binaries available on Brave GitHub 3." unquote

Thanks kojo+oi, that's the Brave Tor object, not the Brave browser installer .exe that topic/404571 is tracking.

Hi kojo+oi,

 

(Jan 12, 5:07 AM)Brave Support advise:

quote:

"If it’s true that Kaspersky have firmly decided that Tor is malware, they are mistaken. That’s not something that they’ve said to us directly yet though — we’re still going through their slow process of submitting a false-positive report. However, if that really is the final answer from them, there’s nothing that we (Brave) can do about it.

The Tor binary in Brave is used when you open a private window with Tor. If you delete the Tor binary, then private windows with Tor won’t work. But everything else will still work — for now. We intend to use Tor to anonymize more of the behind-the-scenes network connections that Tor makes. So in future, more features will rely on the Tor binary".

unquote

Kaspersky Lab Technical Support advised" "add object: tor-0.3.4.9-win32-brave-0 to exclusions", however, that's not a successful solution as Kaspersky Total Security 2019 19.0.0.1088(d) continues to detect/report.

Because there is such conflicting advice:

Brave -> <- Kaspersky, you may wish to log it with  https://support.kaspersky.com/ &  https://community.brave.com/

Please post back their responses if you decide to escalate.
