The Denver Post reports that according to a report from cybersecurity firm Rapid7, several popular Internet-connected baby monitors are vulnerable to basic hacking methods. The research examined nine baby monitors and found “serious security problems and design flaws in all of the” tested cameras, the Post says. According to the researchers, some monitors had unchangeable passwords that could be used to access the devices, others failed to encrypt their data. “In the Rapid7 study, researchers rated the devices’ security on a 250-point scale. The scores then received a grade of between ‘A’ and ‘F.’ Of those tested, eight received an ‘F,’ while one received a ‘D,’” the Post says.
