Washington DC's Union Station officials suspect hackers were involved in causing a pornographic video to play on an advertising kiosk in the station’s main hall on Monday evening.
From The Washington Post:
The incient was caught on camera by a bystander, who said it happened around 5:30 p.m. and lasted about three minutes.
In a video of the incident posted on social media and since removed, the large digital screen located in the Main Hall, outside the entrance to Chipotle, displayed videos that were apparently streamed from the website PornHub. The sexually explicit content was immediately noticeable to passersby. Some people stopped, stared and snickered, while others cautiously approached the screen, trying to figure out how to turn it off.
“What the hell is this?” proclaimed one man, pointing at the screen.
“Oh my God!” yelled a woman who watched from afar.
Gizmodo has censored and uncensored versions of the video.
