The article concerns Kaspersky Small Office Security 8.

Kaspersky Small Office Security protects your web camera stream from unauthorized access.

To check if protection is enabled:

  1. Connect your webcam to the computer and turn it on.
  2. Open Device Manager:
    • If you are using Windows 7, click Start in the lower-left corner of the screen and search for Device Manager.
    • If you are using Windows 8, 8.1 or 10, press the Win + X combination on the keyboard and select Device Manager from the list.
  3. Find the webcam in the Imaging Devices section, Sound, video and game controllers section, or Cameras section and double-click it.
  4. Go to the Driver tab and click Details.
  5. Check the Driver files list.

If Kaspersky Small Office Security supports the web camera model, the list will show the file %windir%\System32\drivers\usbvideo.sys, where %windir% is the folder in which the operating system was installed.
