Thwarting The Masses

If you live in urban or suburban areas, or if you live within a full tank of gas of one, you may need some help in keeping the Golden Horde from finding you if things should break down catastrophically.

We've all seen the roadside signs, and some overhead signs, like these:




Now, understand that I am not advocating that anyone do anything illegal or attempt to do anything that will lead to potential harm for your fellow citizens, but it does seem wise to understand how these devices operate.

The folks over at I-Hacked have provided a handy way to get into these style devices, including a method of defaulting the device to its factory password. You can read the article here.

If a state of emergency is declared, hacking these signs telling people that a checkpoint is ahead might be a nice thing to do. I think you get the idea.
