My days of needing to monitor the baby are a few years behind me now, but seeing this video still sent shock waves down my spine. The thought of a stranger looking at my baby without my knowledge is very troubling to say the least.

Apparently a hacker from Amsterdam was able to control of their baby monitor camera and was even able to send commands to it, play bizarre music and even change the camera's angle to other parts of the room. When the victims did some research, they found their baby’s nursery on a website that also showed various other hacked cameras.

So beware, what you may think helps you keep an eye on things for your safety and protection, may be just the tool needed to do the very opposite of what you intended.
