ABOUT ACCESS BY APPLICATIONS TO SOUND RECORDING
Criminals may attempt to obtain unauthorized access to your sound recording devices by means of special software.
Sound recording devices are microphones that are connected to or built into the computer and capable of transmitting an
audio stream through the sound card interface (input signal). Kaspersky Internet Security controls access by applications
to sound recording devices and provides protection against unauthorized interception of the audio stream.
By default, Kaspersky Internet Security blocks applications from Untrusted and High Restricted trust groups from
receiving the audio stream coming from sound recording devices connected to the computer. You can manually allow
applications to access sound recording devices (see the section "Configuring application access to sound recording
devices" on page 86).
If an application from the Low Restricted group is requesting access to a sound recording device, Kaspersky Internet
Security displays a notification and prompts you to choose whether or not to allow this application to access the sound
recording device. If Kaspersky Internet Security is unable to display this notification (for example when the Kaspersky
Internet Security graphic interface has not loaded yet), the application from the Low Restricted trust group is allowed
access to the sound recording device.
All applications in the Trusted group are allowed access to sound recording devices by default.
