The Hacker In My Ring Camera: A Tale of Trolls And A Podcast

Imagine installing security cameras in your house to protect your family. Then one day those cameras start talking to you. Trolling you, in fact.


After last week when the news broke that Amazon’s super sketchy security camera company Ring, had its products compromised, Motherboard got even more scoop: There’s a livestream-podcast over a Discord channel where hackers take over people's Ring cameras and use their speakers to troll its owners in the comfort of their own homes.


Then Motherboard tested the security of Ring and found, well, Ring accounts are lacking basic security measures.


On this week’s CYBER we have our reporter Joseph Cox, who broke the stories, to tell us more.
