Note to parents: Secure your wifi network and this won't happen.

The monitor wasn't hacked, their wifi network was accessed. Idiots probably left it unsecured or had a super simple passkey.

Also, be sure to use WPA2 if possible. WEP keys can be cracked in a matter of minutes or even seconds (no joke, I have done it myself for fun). WPA2, while not invincible, is much harder to break.

thats actually a good baby monitor if it goes to your home network.

The one I used to have was a general baby monitor that had an A and B frequency. you paired your frequencies on the monitor and camera to get video.

I had mine on A, I put the monitor to B for the heck of it and I was looking in my neighbors baby's room!!

This is nothing. You should see what was being hacked at blackhat and defcon this year. You know that camera on your samsung smart tv? Yeah. Easy. That's just one example. If you have anything attached to your home network, its liable to be hacked, and easily so.

wep keys can be cracked easily. my record is 20 seconds. wpa/wpa2 can be defeated if you know how to ask the AP correctly when people forget to turn off a couple of convenient features. not changing the default passwords for their gear- i love it when that happens. i have a list of thousands of default vendor passwords that my tools can run through in minutes.

what we have here are parents who are too stupid to secure their wireless network, so i have few hopes for the kid they're raising.

Most adults are unfortunately electronically functionally illiterate. Just like people who can't read but get by with associate and repetition, it's worse for technology. The fact people don't know you can turn off broadcasting of their wireless signal, or as you mentioned change the password in a minute or two is scary.
