Virus Total has detected a Trojan file [Backdoor]/Win32.Zegost for the computer desktop username, even though I disabled OneDrive. I ran antivirus scans but they came back negative. The process seems to begin with lsass.exe. How should I go about this? What pitfalls might be there if I do not do anything?
lsass stands for Local Security Authentication Server. It is a legitimate file and is highly essential program for Windows operating system. It is used for verfying user authentication in logins for PCs or servers. It is typically located in c:\windows.
