Start Laughing Now, TCM (Truly Clueless Management)
Sometimes you just have to laugh. Hackers edited roadside signs in Texas
I am willing to bet that the padlock was flimsy and the password even flimsier (IF it had one). Nice of them not to use naughty words and REALLY embarrass the Public Works Department. And when was the last time that password was changed? (Oops, I must remember I’m talking about Texas.)
The head of Public Works got all huffy, but really should have been considering what the sign might have said, and thanking his lucky stars he got off so lightly. Check out the KXAN spoofings of the Zombie alert.
It goes to show you that the low-tech attack on high-tech trumps fancy attack code every time.
