How porn ended up on screens in Union Station

Hackers put porn in Union Station screens

WASHINGTON (WUSA9) - People passing through busy Washington Union Station got quite a surprise Monday night. For a few minutes, a porn site popped up on some screens inside the train station.

“The monitors at Union Station just started playing Pornhub,” tweeted _joannaw at 5:34 p.m. Monday. The page is popular free porn site.

Station management tells WUSA9 that the screens were hacked, but would not elaborate. “Fortunately it was quickly turned off,” said Beverley Swaim-Staley of the Union Station Redevelopment Corporation.

The vertically-oriented monitors are supposed to be touch screen maps of the station. Swaim-Staley says developers of the screens “are doing their due diligence” before turning them back on again.
