    Obviously they've been rattled by the wave of criticism and are now locking it up as tightly as a bank account. :D

    In addition to making Recall an opt-in feature, Microsoft’s Davuluri also writes that the company will make changes to better safeguard the data Recall collects and more closely police who can turn it on, requiring that users prove their identity via its Microsoft Hello authentication function any time they either enable Recall or access its data, which can require a PIN or biometric check of the user’s face or thumbprint. Davuluri says Recall’s data will remain encrypted in storage until the user authenticates...

    Yeah, it was inside the profile folder, specifically in roaming\mozilla\firefox\profiles\user account letters.default-release\

    Was in both user account folders

    inside user.js I think?

    Found it using Loaris Trojan Remover.

    Microsoft doing Microsoft things. Nothing new there, only one reason for them to have such feature

    You probably aren't going to find it on your pc xD

    I also looked it up and couldn't figure it out which is why I asked here if anyone knew what it is and or does.

    Prefix "Susp." is for "suspicious", which itself it loosely defined as "a suspicious program which behaves like xyz".

    Would you mind to upload the file in question to virustotal.com?
    On one hand we could check if there are any other AVs detecting it (there is always a chance for a false positive) and on the other hand you will get other "strings" which you can search for, like for example Susp.SomeVirus.A could be recognised as Virus.SomeVirus.XYZ or the like by other AVs.
    And third: if you upload the virus there, other vendors can access the results and maybe update their database, if not done already (better protection for everyone).
