Hack leaves X-rated message on library's kiddie phone line

Children's dial-a-story message at a public library is changed to porn and profanity in phone system hack attack.

Someone hacked into a California library's dial-a-story phone service and replaced a fairy tale with a pornographic, profanity-laced message, according to The Associated Press.

The director of the public library in Benicia, which is about 30 miles northeast of San Francisco, says a four-digit passcode is required to change the recording. The offensive message was immediately removed after it was reported last week.

I know you're probably wondering what the message was. It reportedly involved a dog and a pig. Enough said.
