This is Not a Coincidence

Last week, boingboing posted about how many LED traffic signs never get their default passwords changed. It's easy to change the message on the sign when the password is the same as when it came off the factory line.

This week, MSNBC.com is reporting that road signs in at least three states have been "hacked".

Doesn't take much to "hack the system" when ABSOLUTELY NO PRECAUTIONARY MEASURES are taken by the road crews that operate these things.

Just sayin'.
