Zombies Ahead

Zombies ahead! The warning was issued by an electronic road sign in Greece, N.Y. after an alteration was made by hackers. Officials weren’t amused and called it an act of vandalism, but personally I have a hard time imagining what harm it could have done. There wasn’t even any physical alteration or damage inflicted on the sign itself and it could not have been too much of a challenge to change it back. Then again, maybe a few poor souls saw the sign, panicked and immediately engaged their fight or flight mode, putting their cars into reverse, and gunning it to the nearest airport. How would that conversation have gone?

“Sir/madam what is the reason for your visit?”
