Hacked road sign in Louisville warns of zombies

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A hacked road sign in Louisville instructed motorists to "honk if you're horny" and "beware of zombies," prompting the city's public works department to investigate who was changing the messages on the electronic message board.

Lindsay English, a spokeswoman for the Metro Public Works and Assets, told The Courier-Journal that the sign on Brownsboro Road was hacked twice on Tuesday and Wednesday.

She said the signs are operated through a subcontractor, SafetyCo., which was investigating how the electronic signs were reprogrammed. The signs are password-protected and were changed as soon as the city was notified.
