#Privacy: Asics apologies after hackers broadcast porn on screens in flagship store

The adult content had been played on the promotional screens outside a flagship store in Auckland, New Zealand. 

According to the New Zealand  Herald, the pornography had been streamed for nine hours over the weekend, and wasn’t stopped until Sunday morning when employees arrived at the store. 

In a Facebook post, the Japanese sports company stated that “an unknown person gained access to the screens above our Central Auckland store and some objectionable content was displayed on the screens.”

The company is currently working with software and online security suppliers to ensure the incident doesn’t repeat itself. 

Security officer Dwayne Hinango said: “Some people were shocked, but others just stopped and watched.”

One mother who was on the way to breakfast with her 7-year-old son, told the Herald that the content was “totally inappropriate and offensive.”

She added: “It’s not something you want kids exposed to and it’s also embarrassing for Auckland as a tourist destination.”

Asics has apologised to those who saw the content.
