COMMUTERS ON ONE of Canada's busiest trade routes were amused when the 
LED message board announced that Prime Minister Stephen Harper eats 

Instead of announcing the next stop, the LED board on the GO trains, 
seemed to feel that it was very important that the world knew about 
Harper's dining habits. 

Alas, no one seems to have snapped a picture of the phenomenon, but 
the story has been confirmed by the people running the possessed LED 
board, Exclusive Advertising. The outfit said that its LED board had 
been hacked and the message had not been authorised by it, or GO 

Exclusive Advertising said that it was sprucing up on its security 
after the incident. However, the press release, here [1], seems more 
interested in catching the hacker than apologising to Harper. 

It also repeats the LED comments in big bold letters in case you were 
left wondering what the Hacker claimed.
