(PIX11) – Hackers have a new target: baby monitors.
A family in Texas learned the hard way when they heard strange voices coming from their two-year-old daughter’s bedroom.
When they went to investigate, they found out someone had hacked the monitor over the internet and was watching their child.
The sicko was making sexual comments to their little girl and calling her names.
Marc Gilbert, the child’s father, said he heard the voice say, “Wake up Allyson, you little [expletive].”
Gilbert said the baby monitor then rotated to watch him plug the camera out.
“As a father, I’m supposed to protect her against people like this. It’s a little embarrassing to say the least but it’s not gonna happen again,” the child’s father said.
Thankfully, the child slept through the entire ordeal.
Gilbert told ABC News that he had basic security and firewall features installed.
