Hacker Taunts Child Over Baby Monitor [VIDEO]
Did you know baby monitors could be hacked? A couple in Houston, Texas didn't know either. It happened to them.
Sounds like a scene from a 'Scream' movie. The story has a creepy factor. The father in Houston,Texas says he and his wife heard a detached voiced saying sexual things to their two-year-old daughter and it was coming from her room.
For two years, Marc Gilbert and his wife have come to rely on their Internet cameras. With them, they could watch their two toddlers in their rooms. But over the weekend, someone else was watching too. Gilbert says he first heard a voice from down the hall. As he and his wife got closer, what it was saying got worse.
The voice said "Wake up Allyson, you little (expletive)." And soon he knew it was coming from the camera. Gilbert immediately pulled the plug and started doing research. He believes someone hacked his router as well as the camera. The person could see Allyson's name on the bedroom wall to call her by it.
He now wants to warn parents about the danger. A computer expert suggests following all security recommendations for these types of cameras, as well as securing your home networks as much as possible.
