Observations[edit | edit source]

  • The sign appears to reboot if you write a null byte '\x00' to port 700
  • The read only snmp community is "public".

Location[edit | edit source]

It's on the shop wall next to the mooninite. It has a network address and a usb cable hanging down next to the SIP phone. You can see the IP address on the display. Pwn it.
