Visitors at Washington’s Union station were surprised when they were given an x-rated experience. The digital advertisement board started playing some NSFW videos, according to the eye-witnesses. The content was being streamed directly to the advertisement board. One of the people tweeted:

The monitors at Union Station just started playing Pornhub, during rush hour Monday.

Beverley Swain-Staley, president and CEO of union station’s development confirmed in an interview that videos were being streamed on the ad-board and were pornographic in nature. These videos played for a couple of minutes until someone found a solution. The solution was the use of hardware switch to turn off the board, which worked pretty fine as a kill switch.

Not to forget, these boards were installed recently as an innovation update to the station. The on/off button is present nearby board, however, videos and ads are sent remotely.These vertically placed monitors are to serve as a touch screen interface for watching the station’s map. The developers behind the monitor are actually working to solve and rectify the issue.

In later released reports, the screen developers and authorities indicated that these vertical ad boards were hacked to be provided with a new source of the video, from PornHub.
