Creepy Voice from Baby Monitor Yells at baby

It's middle of the night and 10-month-old Adam Schreck's daugher was asleep in her room.  Adam had a baby monitor that was also equipped with a camera.  Suddenly, there was a creepy voice coming from the baby monitor.

The voice said "Wake up baby.. Wake up baby" and then a long 'aaaaahhhhh'. Once Adam entered the baby's room, the camera turned towards Adam and shouted at him.

No, I'm not telling you scary stories and not even talking about the scary baby monitor scene from 'Insidious' movie.  It's real incident occurred in Cincinnati, ohio.

Someone hacked into the Adam's baby monitor and began shouting at his daughter.  The camera that was hacked is manufactured by Foscam, according to Fox19 report.

Earlier this year, security journalist Brian Krebs explained about a security bug in the Foscam's firmware.  The bug allows anyone to access the web-interface for this camera by entering a blank username and password.

This is not the first case of hackers taking control of a baby monitor, as a similar incident occurred in Houston last year.

To secure yourself, make sure you have update to date firmware and change the default user name and password of your baby monitor.
