Source: What "avast overseer" is?It is our new application that is going to help us detect common (technical) issues with our products. In a sense, it behaves similarly to our Avast Emergency Update but is able to correct these issues independently and even catch them sooner. That's at least theory, currently we are evaluating its performance on small fraction of our users
Good point,but hmmm, I find better one!
Yeah sure they will keep an eye on you and will call police or even military if any thief or burglar breaks into your house.Good point,but hmmm, I find better one!

I have just installed Kaspersky and it alerted me with a pop up that an application is blocked from accessing webcam.Avast has plenty of privacy problems but I dont know if this premise is right (spying on via webcam); I am almost sure that it isnt the case.
This Kaspersky protection is generic, it is simple blocking any access to the webcam for applications on the untrusted group.
@Umar.18 Are you using the default Kaspersky settings? If so it is strange that this Avast executable file is on the untrusted group.
