Texas zombies and Illinois Nazis

I knew about the Illinois Nazis problem, but not about about Texas zombies.

COLLINSVILLE, Illinois - Pranksters in at least three states are messing with electronic road signs meant to warn motorists of possible traffic problems by putting drivers on notice about Nazi zombies and raptors. And highway safety officials aren't amused.

The latest breach came Tuesday during the morning rush hour near Collinsville, Ill., where hackers changed a sign along southbound Interstate 255 to read, "DAILY LANE CLOSURES DUE TO ZOMBIES."

A day earlier in Indiana's Hamilton County, the electronic message on a board in Carmel's construction zone warned drivers of "RAPTORS AHEAD — CAUTION."

Hi Terry,

This was also copied at the Gold Coast earlier this week. Zombies featured, along with "all your roadsign belong to us"

Qld Transport outraged at the stupidity of said hackers, yadda yadda yadda. Not so upset by the fact that every electronic roadsign in queensland shares the same password.
