Lizard people on Interstate 30

Recently we blogged about a cyber security threat targeting the construction industry in New Zealand.

A construction company in Dallas also suffered a cyber security breach this month when hackers commandeered their signage along a major interstate highway. Electronic signage warning of nearby construction work was replaced with message including “Work is canceled. Go back home.” [sic].

As well as more politically charged statements like “Bernie for president” and “Donald Trump is a shape shifting lizard!”

Although the signs were probably intended as a harmless prank the Texas Department of Transportation has criticized the hackers for diverting attention from nearby hazards.
