A stranger's voice on the babycam: 'Cute baby'

Every parent's worst nightmare has come to life, AGAIN! Last year, I told you about two separate instances of hackers taking over Foscam baby monitors and using them to spy on the babies and their parents. This time, the story takes place in Texas and involves a baby, the nanny, a hacker and a Foscam baby monitor.

Nanny Ashley Stanley was in the nursery with baby Samantha, changing her diaper, when she heard a man's voice began talking to her from the baby monitor, telling her how cute the baby is and "that's a really poopy diaper."

In a panic, Stanley quickly unplugged the camera and called the family to make sure they weren't playing a prank on her. Sure enough, the family wasn't and the worst became true: A hacker had broken into the baby monitor and had been silently watching ... and nobody knows for how long.
