Computer pranksters in Croatia hacked into tourism board computers and downloaded porno movies onto a town centre information screen.

Red faced officials in Slavonski Brod managed to shut down the link but only after a cheering crowd had gathered around the screen, which normally gives cultural tips to visitors.

Police called in special IT crime experts to help track down the hackers. Meanwhile the local council have pledged to splash out on a computer security upgrade to make sure nothing similar happens again.

Deputy mayor Zeljka Kristof said: “This is something we take very seriously because we have worked hard to give our town an image among tourists and visitors that we do not want sullied in any way. This incident shocked a lot of people and made our visitors feel very uncomfortable. It just proves our computer systems need to be made more secure.”
