My question is. How to prevent Webcam hijack.
I would like to know if was to use D+ HIPS, would it offer me the same level of protection as my current HIPS program ‘Spyshelter Premium’.
I want to protect against webcam & microphone hijacking yet maintain it’s usability when I need to use them.
If so. How do I set it up.
A better configuration change is to add *\RPC Controll\ntsvcs which is the Service Control Manager and *\RPC Control\plugplay to the protected COM Interfaces will protect against access to webcams and other plug & play devices. I did some testing with this and I noticed that by adding these two COM Interfaces, CIS will alert when the antitest executable tries to access these interfaces and by choosing to block, prevents access to the webcam. Adding
\RPC Control\Audio will detect any access to the microphone.
Also, if know the name of the device object that belongs to the webcam you can add it as \Device<name of webcam device object> to the protected files section. You can use winobj from sysinternals to list all installed device objects.
