In­done­sian po­lice said a man ar­rested for broad­cast­ing porn on an elec­tronic bill­board in the coun­try’s cap­i­tal gained ac­cess to the sys­tem af­ter it dis­played its log-on cre­den­tials. Jakarta Po­lice Chief Muham­mad Iri­awan said the sus­pect, 24-year-old Sa­mud­era Al Hakam Ralial, ad­mit­ted he hacked the IT sys­tem of the bill­board op­er­a­tor. The movie was dis­played for a few min­utes on the gi­ant video screen in south­ern Jakarta on Fri­day. Iri­awan said Sa­mud­era had passed by the bill­board and saw it was dis­play­ing user cre­den­tials and other in­for­ma­tion. He then logged in to sys­tem from his of­fice but claims he didn’t re­alise a porno­graphic web­site he viewed was up­loaded to the bill­board.
