SALT LAKE CITY — An electronic sign on the campus of the University of Utah was seen displaying pornography today.
According to a spokesperson for the university, the sign was first noticed by a university employee at 2:06 p.m. today. The electronic sign is adjacent to the student life building.
The university spokesperson says the touch-screen kiosk was shut down at 3 p.m. The university began investigating soon thereafter.
After checking the browser history of the kiosk, university officials determined that the access occurred just after midnight on Sunday, Sept. 11. According to the university of spokesperson, over the course of the next two days, users logged into several pornographic websites on the kiosk.
The spokesman says campus police are looking at surveillance footage near the kiosk to see if they can determine who is responsible.
None of the other electronic screens across campus, which include 19 outdoor and roughly 100 indoor, were impacted, according to the spokesperson.
All other electronic signs on campus are secured.
