Camera Hack: Mom finds live stream of young daughters' bedroom online

 (FOX NEWS)- A Houston mother is warning all parents after discovering that hackers had infiltrated the surveillance cameras in her young daughters' bedroom. 

A live stream of the bedroom of her 8-year-old twin daughters made its way online through an app called Live Camera Viewer for IP Cams. 

The mother said an Oregon woman saw the live stream and posted on a Houston Facebook page in an effort to alert the family.

The camera systems allow parents to stream the feed through their home WI-FI, then keep an eye on their kids at all times through a device or phone. 

The mom believes the hacker was able to gain access by figuring out the family's IP address while her daughters played online video games.
