Early Monday morning, commuters near the University of Texas were caught by surprise when they saw the information being scrolled across the construction road signs. Instead of their normal detour information, the signs shouted out the following messages.
“Caution! Zombies Ahead!” and “Nazi Zombies! Run!!!”
The reports say the hackers broke into the panels located on the road signs and bypassed the passwords to leave 5 separate signs for the morning motorists. Though the trick was corrected by 8am, the biggest concern was when the motorists were slowing down to take pictures.
Though it is illegal to mess with road signs in this manner and we do not support it here, this is one of those hacker cases where it is more comical than anything else.
