Another baby monitor camera hacked
Hacking IoT baby monitor cameras may not be high on the priority list for most attackers, but that doesn’t mean someone is not getting off on remotely spying on families. That is a lesson learned the hard way by a 24-year-old South Carolina mom who awoke to the baby monitor camera pointed at her. She didn’t think anything of it until the camera moved on its own again to watch the spot where she breastfeeds her infant son.
“My son is only 3 months old, and God knows what kind of images and videos out there of both of us and intimate moments,” Jamie Summitt told WCIV. “I feel guilty for not doing enough research on this. I didn’t know this was something I needed to look into. I thought baby monitors were kind of cut and dry. You find a baby monitor, you watch them napping, it was supposed to be a safety thing.”
