Marc Gilbert told ABC News that he was washing dishes on the evening of Aug. 10., when he heard noises coming from his daughter’s room. When he and his wife went to investigate, he said they heard a voice coming through a baby monitor that was hooked up to the home’s wireless Internet system. He said the monitor’s camera swiveled toward them and the hacker called Marc Gilbert a “stupid moron” and cursed at Lauren Gilbert.
Gilbert said he immediately pulled the device out of the wall. He said, thankfully, his daughter wasn’t disturbed by the hacker because she was born deaf, and depends on a cochlear implant.
