Police have arrested an information technology expert who allegedly hacked the system of a jumbotron on Jl. Wijaya, South Jakarta, and made it display a porn movie last Friday afternoon.

The police apprehended the suspect, identified as SAR, 24, on Tuesday at his company in Senopati, South Jakarta, said Jakarta Police chief Insp. Gen. Mochamad Iriawan.

It was believed the suspect was able to access and hack the system after he obtained its username and password accidentally shown once on the jumbotron.

SAR purportedly took a picture of the password and username, before then getting into the system and changing its content to a porn movie.

“That’s the suspect’s current testimony. We are still investigating it as we have not found the picture of the username and password in his cellphone,” Iriawan said as quoted by kompas.com on Tuesday. “He said he worked alone but we will also investigate that.”

SAR will be charged under Article 282 of the Criminal Code on immoral acts, in addition to Article 27 of the Electronic Information and Transactions (ITE) Law with a maximum of six years’ imprisonment and a fine of Rp 1 billion (US$76,923).
