Russian Jailed For Hacking Highway Sign With Porn

porn-in-moscowYahoo News reports:

MOSCOW (AFP) – A Moscow court jailed a Russian hacker for 18 months after he altered an electronic advertising billboard so that it screened a pornographic video, the RIA Novosti news agency reported Thursday.

Hacker Igor Blinnikov stopped traffic in January last year by breaking into a computer system and screening a graphic sex video for around 10 minutes on a video billboard beside a busy highway in central Moscow in the late evening.

Blinnikov, who comes from the southern Russian city of Novorossiisk, was found guilty late Wednesday of illegally gaining access to information on a computer and distributing pornographic materials.

He called the video prank on Moscow’s Garden Ring highway a “joke that went wrong” and said that he would appeal against the sentence in a video of the courtroom posted on RIA Novosti’s website on Thursday.,,

    is this a more sophisticated form of flashing? and with the prior record of ‘attempting’ to deal marijuana, i would say we’re dealing with a pro here.

    Anybody who reads Disinfo halfway seriously (not as part of the Status Quo Brigade) should be able to come up with a better video to screen on a highway sign than porn.

    Serves that perverted commie bastard right! But let’s apply this standard across the board. Please jail:
    - The people who own and direct MTV, which regularly offers scantily clad 15 year olds who jump around singing about sex. Jail the damn pedophiles!
    - All reality shows, which tend to be bad porn without penetration.
    - The whole advertisement industry.
    - The whole Catholic church… Also the Protestants. A lot of people think the Protestants don’t like to “confess” little boys and girls. But they do… Try Michael Parenti’s book “God and His Demons” for evidence.
    - The military, which is the gayest organization on Earth. You got a bunch of kids trying to “bayonet” each other and to “shoot” each other in the face. It doesn’t get gayer than that, ladies and gentlemen! Then there is the scatology, like when the flyboys “dump a load” on the faces of unsuspecting civilians. Jail the military!

    We need more jobs! Expand the prison industry! Imprison the perverts and pedophiles!

      I agreed with the MTV and the others, but leave the military out of it.  I guess that you are too chicken to serve your country.

    The fact that people are still offended by the naked body is just plain silly. I can see how they would be angry about the circumvention of the ad revenue they paid for but it was probably just for vodka which needs no advertisement in the first place.
