Electronic Road Sign Hacking

Does this have ANYTHING to do with calendar server migration?

Well.... a teeny tiny bit.  In why we do not ever want your system passwords and why we purge any of your data as soon as we can if we need to look at it.

But it's also cool and amusing.  

Besides, I'm pretty sure at least one of the signs they have photos of is on Massachusetts Avenue in the vicinity of MIT, so I need to link to it.

Head over to Jalopnik for How to Hack an Electronic Road Sign.

The method is based on the usual lack of physical padlock security, usual use of default password ("DOTS"), and dirt-simple method of resetting the entire system to default (CTRL+SHIFT+"DIPY").

Moral is left for the reader.
