Yoga 710 Webcam Light occasional flash

I own a Yoga 710, and have been very satisfied with it.


However, recently the light that indicates the webcam is being used has been flashing on and off occasionally. Sometimes it flashes every few seconds, sometimes it is only every few minutes. The light never stays on for more than a split second. I am worried this means some malware is accessing my camera for unknown reasons.

I disabled the setting that allows apps to have access to the camera, yet the light continues to flash. In the meantime, I have taped over it for privacy reasons, but I would like to solve the problem.

I don't know if this is related, but I also noticed around the same time that my screen would sometimes become redder (almost like it was turning on dusk-screen settings) and then turn back to normal. Please help!

 

Thank you!
