Hacker 'shouts abuse' via baby monitoring camera

A family in Houston in the US apparently had their child's baby monitor camera hacked, after insulting phrases emanated from the unit.

Marc Gilbert heard expletives being directed at his two-year-old daughter Allyson, before he disconnected the camera.

Mr Gilbert said that the invasion felt like "someone broke into our house", but because his daughter is deaf, she was oblivious to the intrusion.
