    As the hacker in your universe i can assure you. This isn`t possible. Train Stations along with airports, power stations and other essential networks are run close circuit. You can`t hack unless you access they`re software direct.

    It is possible yeah, the train station monitor is not one connected to the train monitor (if that makes sense) the one he hacked was a monitor that connects to the internet to a live feed which updates it with news.. So he could have pretty much hacked it before and now just used the opportunity with his phone, right ?

    I saw them on TV, admitting they had shopped the video. The just pasted the recording made by the phone onto the board with a track,rotate,scale function. All people looking like they saw something were into the hoax.

    The same people `hacked` a parked ferari and a highway information screen.

    It would have taken much longer than that to actually access the system, and plus, why show YOUR OWN FACE? All they have to do is prove you were at the station (security cameras will take care of that) and you are in deep poo for hacking a private network...

    "it`s not possible" comments are pathetic. i;m not a hacker but it`s obvious how it`s done.

    train companies have IT infrastructure spread over a wide geographical area....by their nature.

    they`ll have one or 2 IT centers. those people need to be able to support systems remotely. much of the support is done through web interfaced applications because thats the way computers are these days.

    the particular application used here is on a public web server and is either unprotected, using the default manufacturers password, or the guy has inside information (perhaps a mate working for the company or whatever)

    he uses his phone`s browser to load the webpage and does his deed.

    nothing fancy, nothing clever.

    easy!
    unless of course it was original footage he edited, where a huge green screen TV wasnt used..

    Yes, it is possible to hack the monitor, as it is probably wired to a computer somehow, could he do it through his phone? Unless he jail-broke it, and put extra applications, that he would have had to code himself, then no. I assume what really happened, was he had a friend hack it from a computer, and the just directly send video from his phone, to the computer, so that it could stream to the monitor. Which, with a mild knowledge of hacking, is far more probable.

    I am not a major hacker or anything but one thing that I know about computers is that EVERYTHING is possible. This one is highly unlikely though and it would be much easier to just use a program that lets you edit a video on top of another video. I don`t do much video editing but there must be someway to do that right. I bet its a prank but a really cool one.

    Not possible, unless the train station, for w/e reason made the access to that monitor unsecured.

    Otherwise, he`d have to pre-hack it from a PC and then route his cell-phone`s signal through a hacked connection. Even then, unless that country is leaps and bounds ahead of the US in connection speed for cell phones, he`d experience serious delay and "sputtering" of the image.

    Also, I seriously doubt the screen had a built in speaker.

    Verdict: fake.

    It`s fake. His cell phone video was superimposed on the screen in the video using post-production video editing software like Adobe Preimere Pro or Final Cut Pro that supports motion tracking. The biggest give away is that the latency between his movements on his phone and the result on the screen are too low. After doing some more research, I found that this guy is named Max Cornelisse and these videos are all staged commercials for an IT company in the Netherlands.

    This is fake, the thing on the screen was showing something else.

    Also it is possible to hack into the screen in different methods.

    1. rig the screen though the hardware before hand where it waits for a a connection to switch the fees.

    2. If the tv is displaying stuff though the internet or is anyways linked to the internet though a system of internal networks the computer sending the display could be hacked.

    3. another way to hack if the display connects to the internet to get the feeds is find out what ip the machine is getting the feed from and setup another machine with the same ip in a closer network.

    the hacking had to have been done with a laptop before hand and later after figuring out the protocals to get to the monitor system a phone application could be written to do what was done on a laptop.

    the phone he`s using looks like a Nokia N95 from a casual glance.

    Also, anyone notice that if it indeed were real, we`d hear his voice booming or at least echoing somewhere after he speaks directly to the camera.

    You can`t hear any speakers in the background at all. We all know train stations and their announcement speakers...

    And if his friend`s holding the camera that`s filming him, how come no one anywhere is looking at them at all. You know how when you`re filming someone, there`s other people looking at you?

    Lastly, when a train cancellation announcement`s made, many people usually would look up. NO ONE thought a goofy looking guy on the screen seems weird?

    youre right this is possible, but that phone would have to be SUPER upgraded, like the camera, and the internet, and the running memory, to live feed anything like that. this ones a fake, but it could theoretically be done.

    It`s a fake. You can see the screen is just an image added into the video probably with motion tracking so that the video inside the video always stay over the screen.

    Just ask about 5 or 6 people you know to look at the screen and look impressed and you got the illusion that it`s real.

    To stream a direct link to a screen you need to be plugged, can`t do that from a remote location or else it would be chaos everywhere. Think about neighbors becoming crazy because they can`t watch their football or childreen watching their cartoons being interupted by a live streaming of a guy playing with himself ( Just the lower part ).

    Yeah... those who build the modern television had this comming apparently.

    I hack for a living.

    This is definitely possible, although I can`t say whether he actually did it.

    To do it you would 1) find their servers at your house 2) gain access to the servers 3) rewrite their app or crack it to add easy access to stream the video 4) goto the station and access the app you just wrote to stream the video.

    Possible of not, It`s actually part of an advertising campaign for a dutch university. There are many different versions of this guy hacking all kinds of stuff. The auto-cue of the news for instance. All fake of course, but pretty clever.

    it is possible and it can be done... but to do it you need a pretty modded phoner and better have a good security system otherwise the cops will be on you in a matter of minutes. Kinda of like on them

    although what i have said should not totally be disregared it was true but on top of that he proabably already hacked that way all he had to do is click ok and voila because that would take a hour or two
