Earlier this month, a parent’s worse nightmare came true for a Mississippi family when a hacker gained access to a Ring security camera. The hacker was able to speak through the camera, which was installed in the LeMay family’s daughters’ shared bedroom, and torment their 8-year-old daughter, including telling her he was Santa Clause and playing eerie music from the horror movie “Insidious.”
