Pornography found on University of Utah campus billboard
Salt Lake City, Utah – A person hacked an electronic sign by the student life center at the University of Utah to display porn for two days.
Someone who works at the U noticed it at approximately 2:06 p.m. Tuesday, and within an hour, staff had the kiosk shut down.
“After checking the kiosk’s browser history, crews determined the access occurred at 12:30 a.m. on Sunday, Sept. 11. Over the next two days, users logged in to multiple porn websites on the kiosk,” read a Tuesday evening statement from a University of Utah spokesperson.
Police are now reviewing security footage to see who is responsible.
“None of the other 19 outdoor, and approximately 100 indoor, electronic screens across campus were impacted. All other electronic signs on campus are secured,” the statement concluded.
