    Hackers temporarily changed the message on a South Jersey roadway sign to the word "poop."

    The Press of Atlantic City reports the word flashed repeatedly Wednesday on an electric message board in Mays Landing  near a road construction project.

    The message remained until state Transportation Department officials contacted the contractor responsible for the sign and asked that the word be removed.

    Officials say message boards are secured with locks to prevent vandalism.
