Well, here’s one room to get a word across.
By taking advantage of a vulnerability may be in a common framework of Low Power FM( LPFM) radio transmitters, hackers have repeatedly flooded airwaves across the country with an anti-Trump hymn, sending a very concrete word to the nation’s sitting commander-in-chief: “FDT.”
The hackers are reportedly commandeering the LPFM stations to broadcast “F* ck Donald Trump, ” the protest hymn from rappers YG and Nipsey Hussle, on an interminable loop-the-loop.
The vulnerability stanch from unsecured Barix Exstreamer IP streaming inventions, Ars Technica reports. The inventions can be openly connected to the internet, disclosing them to hacking threats if stations don’t take the appropriate precautions. Barix warned patrons of the vulnerability last-place April, advising users to implement 24 -character passwords and beef up their attachments by using a VPN and procuring their inventions behind firewalls.
That advisory arose soon after a similar hacker considered Colorado-area listeners to 90 uninterrupted hours of a podcast about furry fornication.
Reports of the FDT hacker have come from LPFM broadcasts all over the two countries, from a regional Mexican channel in Nashville, Tennessee to a Catholic programming station in Evansville, Indiana.
Notably, YG offered to give the Trump inauguration some street cred by showing up for a set on the condition that he would only play FDT, for$ 4 million.
For some reason, the Inauguration Committee didn’t bite and booked 3 Doorway Down instead.
