‘Wake up little boy, daddy’s looking for you’: Creepy message that came through on Washington family’s baby monitor after the device was hacked

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3053540/Wake-little-boy-daddy-s-looking-Creepy-message-came-family-s-baby-monitor-device-hacked.html


A family overheard a terrifying message on their young son's baby monitor after the device and its camera were hacked.

When the Washington couple's three-year-old had first began complaining of someone talking to him at night, his parents had put it down to their toddler's over-active imagination, reported CBS New York.

That was until one night when they heard a strange man's voice come over the monitor to tell their son: 'Wake up little boy, daddy's looking for you.' [...] They reported the incident to Foscam, the company where they bought their monitor, who admitted it was possible the device's cameras were being controlled remotely but they could not say from where.

Technology experts have now warned that it is becoming easier for hackers to infiltrate family's baby monitors as many of the newer devices connect to the internet.
(the link might not work, you can google) Have you encountered any creeps like this when you were a child?

Well it isn't just baby monitors. This stuff has been happening for a long time, but through other channels.

Crazy weirdos. Why don't the parents put the child's crib in their bedrooms? That way it's easier to keep an eye on the child.

That is true. I use to share the same bedroom with my parents...but like I said, things still happen.

Me and my friend had a encounter a similar experience when we were little, probably worst. We lived in the same one bedroom apartment complex and shit still slip into the cracks....

Those same type of monitor setups and relays are also in most smartphones,game consoles and newer webcams as well as many smart tvs with built in cams. I've heard of cars with cam installed that go off the newer wifi mobile hotspots being built in to cars lately as well.

Funny thing is when a handful of moonbats claimed they could be hacked and people could watch you through your tv everyone made fun of them. But with the baby monitor issues now people are getting the picture. Meanwhile we nerds are just thinking "told ya".

Or better yet, practice safety within the crib and just....not constantly watch your child like an obsessive freak.

It's one thing to let an infant play captain spaceman with a plastic bag and another.to jump at every one of his sniffles. Unless there a medical issue you don't need a monitor. Just let him sleep.

On a different note, when you wake up in the morning and your pillow is a bit soggy? Not all that drool is yours.

SWEET DREAMS!
