‘Smart’ teddy bears that listened to the voices of children and parents have leaked 2 million recorded messages online – and hackers are now holding them for ransom.

The company that makes the ‘CloudPets’ toys also leaked the user details of 800,000 accounts, including email addresses and passwords.

The leak left millions of families’ private conversations, including voice recordings of their child alone with the toy, exposed for several days before it was stolen by cyber criminals.

Despite knowing about the leak for two months ‘Spiral Toys’ has still not informed any of the families affected.
