A San Francisco Globe article updates us on the very creepy story of people hacking into baby monitors.
How is this disturbing, beyond the idea of violating a family's privacy through their children's spaces? First, there's the audio aspect:
[T]he boy had previously told his parents that he was scared at night because he could hear someone talking to him over the phone. Jay and Sarah were confused as to what he meant until the hair-raising moment Sarah walked into her son's room to hear a voice say, "wake up little boy, daddy's looking for you."
Then there's the camera:
Jay heard the voice from the monitor continue to speak, saying, "look someone's coming or someone's coming into view," as Sarah walked into the room. The couple also noted that the night-vision lens was being controlled to follow their movements.
Let us pause to enjoy the photo attached to the article:
