(CNN) — An unknown hacker apparently gained access to a 2-year-old girl’s baby monitor, calling her by name and harassing her, and her parents, with insults and profanity.
A couple in suburban Houston, Texas, told CNN affiliate KTRK that, over the weekend, they heard a strange voice in the bedroom shared by their two toddlers. When they got there, Marc Gilbert said they realized the voice was coming from the Web camera they use to keep tabs on the children.
What they heard next was ugly.
“He said, ‘Wake up Allyson, you little slut,’ ” Gilbert said. He said the hacker, who had a British or European accent, may have read her name on a wall in the bedroom.
When he and his wife Lauren arrived, Gilbert said, the camera swiveled to face them. The hacker proceeded to call him a “stupid moron” and his wife a bitch, Gilbert said, before he unplugged the camera.
