Texas baby monitor hacked
HOUSTON, Texas (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A horrifying situation developed for two Texas parents, as the camera they were using to monitor their 2-year-old daughter to keep her safe was hacked.
The hacker used the device to curse and say sexually explicit things to the sleeping girl, calling her by name and telling her to wake up.
The parents say the hacker was able to take control of the camera and watch their daughter.
Thankfully, the parents say, the girl was born deaf.
She has cochlear implants which were turned off at night, and never heard a thing.
Computer experts suggest following all security recommendations for these types of cameras--as well as securing your home networks to prevent these types of situations from happening.
