Drivers were surprised to see a threesome vid playing on an electronic billboard.

Distracted Driving

Hackers keep commandeering public television screens and electronic billboards to play porn videos.

Late Saturday night, drivers in Michigan were shocked to see an electronic billboard next to I-75 North displaying a video featuring adult performers Xev Bellringer and Princess Leia. The next morning, New Zealand shoppers saw porn playing on the street-facing screens above sportswear brand Asics’ store in Auckland — and no one seems to know what’s motivating the hackers behind the X-rated stunts.

Surprise Porn

These aren’t the first examples of hackers displaying porn on public screens and billboards.

In March 2018, someone hacked an electronic billboard in Makati in the Philippines to play just 33 seconds of porn. While the content was rather vanilla by porn standards, the hack was particularly outrageous given that porn is completely banned in the nation.

And the following month, someone hacked an Australian mall’s information screen to display the Pornhub homepage for seven minutes.

Dirty Trick

The hackers don’t seem to benefit monetarily from the hacks, so our best guess as to their motivation is that they enjoy knowing they’re causing a little “harmless” chaos with the unexpected porn.

But in the case of the roadside porn in Michigan, at least, the drivers ogling the billboard could have easily caused an accident — meaning any companies operating the screens owe it to the public to amp up the security on them ASAP.
