City kiosk security failures have an easy solution for Porn Videos

The New York City Wi-Fi kiosks were recently shut down due to users who decided to use the devices for porn viewing. Other public devices have also been the target of hackers. Luckily there is a solution to prevent these issues: kiosk software.

We agree with the writer here. Not sure what the problem is with LinkNYC.

Kiosk Security – Porn Video That Played in DC’s Union Station Last Night [NSFW]

Last night, a display screen in Union Station—one of Washington DC’s main transit hubs—found itself moonlighting as a tiny pornographic theater. Now, Gizmodo can exclusively reveal footage of the incident, and I can assure you that, one, it’s definitely pornography, and two, I have never had a commute this stimulating.

I think they said it in the movie (Sierra Madre?) ” we don’t need no stinkin’ lockdown…”.  Somebody supposedly smarter than everyone else turns out to be not as smart as many.

Writeup by Maras from point of view of software provider.  Our take? 

 
I think the Ping guy is being disingenuous when he says he wasn’t hacked.​ “Breaking into the desktop” is a hack in itself.  Was there malware which modified some existing code?.. no. But that isn’t what people are supposed to guard against.  He was hacked.
 
A little disappointing that his protection is predicated on his image build containing his tools.  And he said he “checked every single unit” like he went pc by pc.  No mention of overall remote management and control.
 
They never configured their Win10 correctly (and imaged it as such) and my guess is they are on consumer version.
 
Given all that the odds are very good that he’ll get “hacked” again sounds like to me…
