Security Configuration

Deploying a device with a default password is a large security vulnerability that can easily be avoided. In January of 2009, the electronic traffic signs in Austin, Texas were altered to warn of “Zombies Ahead”. While this “attack” was little more than a prank, a more mischievous individual could have severely disrupted traffic by providing different instructions to drivers. This attack could have been prevented by securing the physical device (using a lock) as well as using a non-default password.

From the report:

According to the blog i-hacked.com, some commercial road signs, including those manufactured by IMAGO’s ADDCO division, can be easily altered because their instrument panels are frequently left unlocked and their default passwords are not changed.
