Kentucky Roadway Message Sign Asks “Send Nudes”

Drivers along a Kentucky highway were exposed to a racy message, thanks to a hacker.

Commuters across Highway 92 in Pine Knot reported seeing an electronic road sign displaying the words "send nudes." State officials say someone hacked into the password-protected system to show the message on a sign operated by a construction contractor.

Witnesses say road departments need to do more to monitor situations such as these. It isn't known how long the message was left on the screen. Administrators shut the sign off as soon as they were aware.
