Too Cheeky: Hacked Digital Signage Displays Pornography

Hackers infiltrated a massive, interactive touchscreen in Washington, D.C. the previous week. The Union Station display transmitted pornographic video for approximately three full minutes.

 

Several employees of the station were eventually able to shut off the screen, located in the main hall. The display was one of a network installed earlier in 2017 to show both advertising and promotional content as well as information like timetables and directories.

 

The content is controlled remotely, and an investigatory team is currently analyzing the situation to determine exactly how this unfortunate incident occurred. It is believed that an unsecured backdoor or software vulnerability is likely to blame.
