A family in Texas is living with shock and terror after learning that their baby monitor had been hacked.Marc and Laura Gilbert recently walked into the room of their 2-year-old daughter and heard a voice coming from the child’s camera equipped monitor. The incident occurred on August 10th.Marc had been doing dishes when he thought he heard something strange coming from his child, named Alison’s room. He and his wife ran into the bedroom and heard the voice, which had a British or European accent, yelling expletives and sexually suggestive vulgarities to Alison. The hacker then started screaming obscenities towards the parents. Greg immediately unplugged the monitor. Thankfully Alison, who was born deaf, remained sleeping through the disturbing occurrence. Greg did not report the incident to police as he could not see the hacker’s face, but he’s sharing the story, hoping to warn and prepare other parents. The family thinks the internet router along with the baby camera were hacked. The traumatized dad stated “I don't think it ever will be connected again. I think we are going to go without the baby monitor now.”
