Have you ever been at the airport lounge waiting for your flight and wondering what can you do with all that time? Maybe planespotting? Checking out the newest fragrances at the duty-free area? Or just walking around the terminal? Well this man has given us a new meaning of waiting for your flight 😉
The airport is Portland International Airport(PDX). A man is chilling for his boarding time, bored as the lad was(#notanavgeek). Gazing into the flight information display screens, he saw the light, just like at the end of every tunnel, only this time it was in front of him for all this time. Our guy, still very bored, remembered that he had his console, Sony’s PS4(sorry Xbox fans). The only major obstacle was, how could he play his console and wait for his flight peacefully? Why not use public infrastructure. So, the man searches for the input/output ports for one of the displays and finds them, disconnects them from the airport servers and connects them to his PS4, though with lag in the online servers due to airport WiFi.
As the man begins to have the time of his life in the terminals, security personnel urge him to stop but it’s still game on for him. At the end, the man, polite as he was with the authorities, eventually boarded his flight and left leaving PDX authorities and many more with a valuable lesson; display sources and power sources should be protected as they may be exploited by persons with ill motives thus posing a security threat.
