Creepy stranger hacks into baby monitor, screams at infant

CINCINNATI, Ohio (WTVR) – An Ohio mother awoke confused in the middle of the night when she heard a man’s voice coming from her baby’s nursery.

When she checked her cell phone to get an image from her baby’s crib cam, she saw the camera was moving, according to a report on

“I also heard a voice again start screaming at my daughter. He was screaming, ‘Wake up baby. Wake up baby.’ Then just screaming at her trying to wake her up,” Heather Schreck told the news station.

The Schrecks were told someone hacked into the IP Camera they used as a baby monitor. Security experts advise people who use IP cameras in their homes to change passwords often and make them difficult to figure out.

    2nd hacking report this year on this site. It’s becoming a trend. Good thing I don’t have smart things at home. My only web-cam is on my laptop and that is not my main computer so it remains shut down most of the time. (Never leave a closed laptop laying flat if you have cats).
