This has been all over the web but I thought it was worth bringing up.
Someone in Austin, TX hacked a number of portable construction signs. They broke into the panels, bypassed passwords, changed messages and then changed the password from the inside.
All this made it difficult for the funny messages to be changed back because the manufacturer didn’t open until 8am the following morning so they couldn’t hack back in to change them back.
The only way this would have been more ideal is if it was over a long or very long weekend and crews would have had to wait for 3 or 4 days before they could hack back into their own boxes.
