I recall back to a time when my kids were little and I, like millions of other parents, relied on those baby monitors to keep tabs on our child's every breath.

One day I was extremely startled to hear someone talking in the baby's room when I knew full well she was alone in her crib.

I quickly realized the baby monitor was actually picking up on conversations in the adjoining apartment, and back then the technology was new, but not terribly advanced.

This story however, has the hair on the back of my neck standing straight, and it will undoubtedly have parents questioning the safety of their children, even in their own bedrooms.

In this case, a baby monitor had apparently been hacked, and while the child was not physically harmed, the incident has left many parents feeling violated.
