11:23 EDTDAKTDaktronics responds to ICS-CERT Vanguard alert
Daktronics reported that recently a small number of North Carolina Department of Transportation Daktronics Vanguard dynamic message signs were compromised. As a result, on June 5, the Industrial Control Systems Cyber Emergency Response Team, or ICS-CERT, a division of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, issued an alert referencing a hardcoded password in the Vanguard controller as the primary cause. The ICS-CERT later clarified the alert on Friday, June 6, stating the password is not hardcoded but is a default password that display owners should change upon installation. The company said: "While the recommendations provided by the ICS-CERT are commonly known as best practices for all display network owners, the alert itself is only applicable to transportation agencies using variable or dynamic message signs. United States transportation system device standards require manufacturers of variable or dynamic message signs to meet unique specifications that are not applicable to other Daktronics products and control systems. We appreciate our customers' continued trust in Daktronics and look forward to discussing any questions or concerns they may have regarding their Daktronics display."
