On Thursday last week thousands of commuters driving to work in Crawley, West Sussex got a special greeting in the morning.
Digital roadside signs that usually inform about parking availability, instead told visitors to “F*** off”. The message appeared on all similar signs around Crawley at about 6.45am and the Council declared that hackers gained remote access to their computers.
UK newspaper “The Daily Telegraph” is associating the act on their web site with the US-based online community TOTSE.
…Our IT staff had the message removed by 9.05am. I think people realise that this was not the work of the council, but we apologise for any offence. Some people found it rather amusing… a council spokesperson said.
