Hackers jam traffic in Moscow with pornographic video

Moscow drivers squinted in disbelief as an electronic big-screen video motorway billboard ran a two-minute pornographic clip posted by hackers, instead of its regular advertising clips.

A couple’s explicit escapades appeared on the 9-by-6-yard display. Some people took pictures of the sight with their mobile phones and posted them on the internet.

The company that operates the billboards, Panno.ru, said hackers were behind a graphic sex video broadcast late Thursday night on two roadside screens along Moscow's Garden Ring Road, one of the city's busiest arteries.

"This was an attack by hackers on the computers, as a result of which one of the commercial video clips was swapped for an indecent video," Panno.ru commercial director Viktor Laptev told RIA-Novosti.

He speculated the attack could have been linked to competition on the advertising market, or simply "hooliganism."

Witnesses said traffic crawled to a halt as unbelieving motorists craned their necks to stare at the X-rated clip which ran for about 20 minutes on the oversized screens.
