"Hey, what show is that? I've seen that show before. Hello?" the creepy voice said to the young girl watching TV.
A Nebraska father released footage of an unknown man who hacked the family's Ring camera and attempted to speak with his young daughter while she watched TV.
Adam Krcilek had the surveillance system placed on his kitchen counter facing the living room. In the video, when he momentarily leaves the room, a voice is suddenly heard through the camera's built-in speaker asking the the daughter in an unsettling voice, "Whacha watchin?"
"Hey, what show is that?" the voice continued. "I've seen that show before. What season ya on? Hello?"
Police are trying to establish the identity of the hacker.
At least five families in different states have reported that hackers have spoken to them through the Ring devices, according to Fox 32, with some families claiming the hackers used racial slurs.
"Unfortunately, when people reuse the same username and password on multiple services, it's possible for bad actors to gain access to many accounts," Ring said in a statement. "We will continue to introduce additional security features to keep your Ring account and devices secure."
"As a precaution, we highly and openly encourage all Ring users to enable two-factor authentication on their Ring account, add Shared Users (instead of sharing login credentials), use strong passwords, and regularly change their passwords," the company added.
