Hackers broadcast porn on TV screens at Brazil bus depot

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

SAO PAULO (AFP) – Hackers infiltrated the travel information video screens at a Brazilian bus station and replaced arrival and departure times with hard-core porn. The sex footage ran for 15 minutes Friday evening at the Boqueirao station in the southern city of Curitiba. The depot was packed with travelers at the time. The police cyber crime unit has been notified and is trying to trace the hacker or hackers, the municipal transport company said. A Curitiba city hall official told AFP the company with the contract to operate the screens has also been notified and told it must improve its security. Social media lit up with screen grabs of the pornography and jokes about the hack. With a population of around two million, Curitiba is the capital of Parana state and one of the largest cities in southern Brazil.

The new industry-developed cyber rankings–and the recent Office of Personnel Management hack–raise questions about the extent to which cybersecurity is a shared responsibility between government agencies and contractors. “You can write a contract requiring somebody to do something. The question is, how do you enforce it? And if it’s broken, what are the penalties? That’s what DOD is really struggling with,” said Jacob Olcott, vice president of business development at BitSight Technologies, which rates firms’ susceptibility to hacks. “If you are the only organization that’s building an F-35, there is only so much that the government can demand of you.” When measured in aggregate, network controls at breached J.P. Morgan Chase and Home Depot, combined with the rest of the retail and financial sectors, rated higher than the top companies supporting the U.S. military, according to BitSight. Those firms include Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Raytheon and 22 other defense contractors. The defense industrial complex is one of the most regulated sectors in the United States. Similarly, background investigation […]
