Parents will do anything to keep their child safe. This includes installing a CCTV inside the child’s room so that they can monitor their child while at work. However, for a couple in US, this move has caused their 8 year-old daughter to be harassed by a hacker.
The mother, Ashley LeMay told CNN that she installed the camera so that she could make sure that they are OK while she’s at the overnight shift but four days after the camera was installed, a hacker managed to get through the system.
From the CCTV footage, it can be seen that their daughter went into her room after hearing song being played from inside her room. Alyssa went on to ask who was playing the song and a voice came through the speaker of the camera. He said,
“I’m your best friend. I’m Santa Claus. Don’t you want to be my best friend?”
Accord to CNN, the person continued to mess with the little girl, even encouraging her to destroy the room. Fortunately, the harassment did not go beyond that as the mother immediately deactivated the camera.
