Family claims hackers gained access to baby monitor, spied on child
HARRIS COUNTY, TX -
It was a terrifying experience for one Texas couple who heard a strange voice coming from their 2-year-old daughter's room.
Marc and Lauren Gilbert went into their daughter Allyson's room to discover the voices they were hearing were coming from the baby monitor.
Marc pulled the plug immediately and began doing research.
He believes someone hacked his router as well as the camera, saying he could see the camera move on them.
Now he wants to warn other parents about the danger.
"As a father, I'm supposed to protect her against people like this. And so it's a little embarrassing to say the least but it's not going to happen again," said Marc. "Allyson was born deaf, so she has cochlear implants, thankfully we had them off slept right through it."
The Gilberts say they will probably get rid of the hacked device.
