It was an eye-opening event at a Best Buy in Greenville, South Carolina, after someone allegedly hacked into the wifi signal within the store and uploaded offensive adult material on a 55-inch TV screen.

The store had to apologize to one woman who was there shopping with her grandchildren. According to this article, “the technical ease with which this event occurred should sound an alarm for all retailers who have or sell similar wifi-enabled devices. Fortunately for Best Buy, the scope of the event was narrow.”
