    Welcome to Android Central! Antivirus apps have a fairly high false-positive detection rate, so it probably isn't malware. Com.sts might be related to Spring Tool Suite--do you use that at all?

    I mentioned above that it's probably a false-positive, so I'd probably ignore it. If the antivirus app keeps bugging you, then you may need to uninstall it. Antivirus apps are generally not that helpful on Android, because (a) true viruses are pretty uncommon, (b) you have to agree to install a malicious app, so prudent web surfing and awareness of what looks suspicious can be the best defense, and (c) Google themselves can scan your phone periodically (go to Settings>Security​, and make sure Verify Apps is checked on).
