Mill Creek Sign Hacked

Imagine our surprise when driving down Bothell Everette Highway and the multimedia billboard sign at Per Business Park, where Larry’s Smoke House and Wetmore Dry Cleaners use to be, is has a different kind of add displaying on it… an ad that, IMHO is not exactly appropriate for our fair town… 🙂

Apparently the sign got hacked. The person who hacked the sign had mentioned on Twitter that they had hacked some 100 other digital billboards although I couldn’t find anything. My guess weak authentication mechanisms, or even more likely, those things are running on Windows 95. Either way, we got an eye-full yesterday.
