Submission + - A Man Replaces Ads with Porn in Moscow 1

anidiot writes: The Russian police arrested a hacker who replaced billboard ads with hard porn. The man, Igor Blinnikov of Novorossiisk, a Black Sea port city in Russia, hacked the outdoor video ad screens via a server in Grozny, Chechnya. For 18 minutes dumbfounded drivers on the main highway circling Moscow could see a couple doing sex instead of ads, with some shooting it on mobile phones (the original article in Russian). When caught, the man turned out to be a 40 year old former sysadmin, moonlighting as a taxi driver due to lack of work. "What else could I do with my time?" — he offered by way of explanation, — "I was bored and just wanted to share some porn from my collection with the people."

The hardest part of climbing the ladder of success is getting through the crowd at the bottom.
