"A family in Illinois was horrified when the Nest security system they'd purchased to give them peace of mind was taken over by a hacker — the latest example of what the tech company has called a 'third-party hack.'


The hidden intruder was reportedly taunting Sud and his family, uttering obscenities that included the N-word. The family also believes the hacker jacked up their thermostat to 90 degrees." []
