Nursery webcam hack prompts police warning

Provincial police in southwestern Ontario are warning people about the use of Internet-connected cameras after a web cam placed in a baby's nursery was hacked. 

Police say a parent near London, Ont., was rocking their child to sleep in their nursery when the camera used to monitor the room was remotely hacked. 

Police say the camera played eerie music and a voice could be heard indicating the parent and child were being watched.

The Internet provider confirmed the home's router had been hacked.
