Hacker says disturbing things to a baby

  • A Houston couple heard a stranger's voice in their 2-year-old daughter's bedroom Saturday. The man with a European accent was heard saying awful things to the baby calling her and her parents names. 

    Marc Gilbert, the toddler's father disconnected the hacked baby monitor and said the little girl who is deaf never woke up during the incident. "If she had heard it, it would have been a big problem." 

    The hacker is said to be controlling the IP cam, which also gave away the baby's name. 

    Marc mentioned that they are planning to not use baby monitors from now on and that he thought publicizing the story was important so other parents could learn about the danger. 

    According to Forbes, the couple were using a Foscam wireless camera.
