While probing VTech servers, the hacker found tens of thousands of pictures of parents and kids. Some are blank, or duplicates, so it’s hard to establish exactly how many are legitimate pictures. But the hacker said he was able to download more than 190GB worth of photos, and considering that there were 2.3 million users registered in the Kid Connect service, it’s likely there were tens of thousands, or more, headshots of parents and kids, according to the hacker. The hacker shared a sample of 3,832 image files with Motherboard for verification purposes, but he also said he doesn’t intend to publish or sell the data. ”Frankly, it makes me sick that I was able to get all this stuff,” the hacker told me in an encrypted chat. ”VTech should have the book thrown at them.”
