Nazi Zombies Streetsign-Hack


(Youtube Direktzombies)

Bevor mir das jetzt noch tausend weitere Leute schicken, hau ich das hier lieber raus: Irgendwer hat ein Straßenschild an der Kreuzung Martin Luther King Blvd/Lamar Blvd in Austin, Texas gehackt und dort Zombie-Botschaften eingeblendet. Hier steht, wie’s geht, hier denkt man an ein Viral des Nazi Zombie-Films „Dead Snow“ aus Norwegen, das Video oben stammt von Austin Texas News.

A city spokesperson said the hacked messages were only up for a few hours, until the construction project manager saw them during his morning commute and immediately ordered them to be changed back.

“Even though this may seem amusing to a lot of people, this is really serious, and it is a crime,” said Austin Public Works spokesperson Sara Hartley. “And you can be indicted for it, and we want to make sure our traffic on the roadways stays safe.”

Hartley said though it was a locked sign, the padlock for it was cut. Signs such as these have a computer inside that is password-protected.

“And so they had to break in and hack into the computer to do it, so they were pretty determined,” said Hartley.

This crime is a class C misdemeanor in Texas, and Hartley said it endangers the public.
