Woman's hacked webcam tells her to 'suck my d--'

•, By Margi Murphy

Several warnings have been issued on internet-connected cameras that can be remotely hacked by pervs and used to spy on people.

Now one woman in the Netherlands has learned just how intrusive these gadgets can be after buying a cheap version from the Dutch retailer Action.

Rilana Hamer, who recently graduated from college and works at a financial services firm, thought the webcam would be a good way to keep an eye on her puppy while she was at work.

But it turned out she was the one being monitored.

Hamer was with a pal when she noticed the rotating camera swivel to look at her from across the room.

"I heard, 'Bonjour, madame,'" she wrote in a Facebook post that has since gone viral.

"I moved to the left and right and the camera came with me."

Hamer whipped out her smartphone to film it, and the chilling clip she recorded appears to show a mumbled voice having a conversation with a terrified Hamer, who screams, "Get out of my house."

It continues to swivel, before uttering "Suck my d—."

"My privacy, my house, my personal stuff and myself… I'm scared.. terrified," wrote Hamer.

"I'm being watched, but for how long? What did that person see from me?"

Hundreds of thousands of unsecured personal cameras are available to watch online, in real time, thanks to sick websites that allow voyeurs to snoop on the general public.
