Ah, simply magical to see how quickly the ecosystem responds! But it's a stark reminder that even with all the security software in the world, there will still be an initial set of victims before everything catches up.

It's great to see that Google Safe Browsing was one of the first to catch this -- it's always pleasing to see that a popular, free, and on-by-default (well for Chrome users) feature is competitive.

Hello,

The URL is currently not available.
If you have a local copy of the suspicious file, please send it in an archive with the password 'infected' (without quotes).
Thank you for your help.
Best regards,

Also I'm trying it now in Brave and just got:

The same in Edge Cromium, although after 1 second I got the red warning of Safe Browsing...

And in Chrome directly:
