This might sounds a bit savage, but if the people that do this sort of thing are ever identified, they should just be eliminated from the gene pool.

 

I've always had concerns about using cameras with my kids......for this exact sort of event

Stuff/Ring:

 

The "bad actors" behind the attacks "often re-use credentials stolen or leaked from one service on other services," the spokesperson said. Ring has addressed the other reports of hacking with similar statements.

Sorry I don't understand why they need the camera in their girls room ?? , Surely they deserve some privacy. I would never and never did put any in our kids rooms. 

 

I think the parents are just as creepy.

Wow. I hope the parents have also started saving for the kids psychiatry appointments.

 

Installing a camera that constantly records and can be viewed at anyway to spy on your 8yo daughter in her own bedroom is casual child abuse imo. Kids need their own space!!

I don't know why you need a camera in your 8 year olds room in the first place.

I guess the parents thought a camera is just an improved baby monitor that will let them keep an eye on their kids and keep them safe? Probably didn't even consider that the camera was connected to the internet, all they know is that they can view the camera feed on their phone and didn't wonder how it gets there.

Another point, not defending the guy's actions in any way, but if a couple of these widely-publicised Bad Things don't happen, people will keep installing insecure Internet-connected cameras in their pre-teen kids' bedrooms. Or more generally insecure Internet-connected anything, more commonly known as "IoT", everywhere they can think of.
