Ohio couple’s baby monitor hacked

An Ohio couple was terrified after waking up in the middle of the night to the sounds of a man's harsh voice roaring through their 10-month-old daughter's video baby monitor.

Heather Schreck stirred sometime around midnight after she heard a man talking to her baby daughter, according to a report. The concerned mother looked at the video monitor through her cell phone and saw the camera was moving without her control.

Heather immediately woke up her husband, Adam, and when the married couple went into their child's room, the camera quickly turned to fix on them, according to the report. The man then screamed profanities before the terrified mother and father unplugged the camera.

The parents were using a Foscam IP Camera.
