Report: Some popular baby monitors vulnerable to hackers

A new report from a cybersecurity firm says that several popular Internet-connected baby monitors lack security to prevent hacking.

Research released Wednesday by Rapid7 found security problems in all eight cameras they tested. Other concerns were that some of the devices didn't encrypt the data that was being streamed to the web. Password security was another issue cited by the firm.

Video baby monitors are very popular with many parents and the idea of someone else watching is frightening.

In addition, a hacked camera could provide access to other Wi-Fi-enabled devices in a person's home, such as a personal computer or security system.

Some of the models listed in the research were:

 

  • Phillips In.Sight B120 (Discontinued according to Phillips NV)
  • iBaby and iBaby M3S
  • Summer Baby Zoom WiFi Monitor & Internet Viewing System
  • Lens Peek-a-View
  • Gynoii
  • TRENDnet WiFi Baby Cam TV-IP743SIC
  • WiFiBaby WFB2015
  • Withing WBP01

What happens if Kim Davis keeps denying marriage licenses?

Kentucky's Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis refuses to issue marriage licenses because of her objection to same-sex marriage. 

In a video captured by BBC News, Kim Davis said, "We are not issuing marriage licenses today."

>>RELATED: Who is Kim Davis?

"Based on what? Why are you not issuing marriage licenses today?" asked one protestor.

"Because I'm not," Davis responded.

She's still refusing even after the Supreme Court denied her request to be excused from issuing same-sex marriage licenses.

"Pending the appeal in the 6th circuit — the appeal stay has been denied," Davis said in a video captured by WLEX.

A protester replied, "The Supreme Court denied your stay."

Davis says issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples "would violate [her] conscience," citing her religious beliefs.

But what will happen to the county clerk if she continues to refuse?

Davis is an elected official, so she can't just be fired. She could be impeached but only by the state legislature.

The Wall Street Journal says that probably won't happen: "Politically, that’s an unlikely scenario in the conservative state."

Davis and her deputies have been ordered to appear before U.S. District Judge David Bunning. 

That means she could be held in contempt of court, which could lead to fines or jail time.

State law could be changed to take clerks' names off of marriage licenses. But it's also unlikely Kentucky's governor will hold a special session to change the law. (Video via WYMT)

Two couples denied by Davis say they don't want her to go to jail. They're asking for her to be fined.

Davis and her deputies are set to appear in court Thursday.
