Last year in USA, road signs were hacked urging voters to vote for Hilary, whilst other signs urged voters to vote for Trump. There were also hacked signs saying “Free Barrett Brown”
Hacking electronic road signs is becoming increasingly popular with more hacked road signs around the world. There are instructions easily found through a google search on how to hack the signs, although “Wanco” the road sign manufacturer has requested the removal from some sites.
The Anonymous Foundation advises against any type of illegal hacking. In the instance of road signs, there is a safety factor which needs to be considered.
