MELVILLE, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — Computer hackers are invading baby monitors, watching and talking to children in their bedrooms. Now, a Long Island congressman wants to strengthen laws to ensure such cybercriminals are punished, WCBS 880’s Sophia Hall reported.
“We are learning of incidents where people have actually hacked into Wi-Fi baby monitors,” said U.S. Rep. Steve Israel (D-N.Y.) “They’ve been watching children. They’ve been watching parents.”
Israel said current laws are outdated and ambiguous, something he believes should be corrected.
