CBS accidentally showed Super Bowl security’s Wi-Fi login information on TV


Security at Super Bowl XLVIII could have been a little tighter. We realized that when a 9/11 truther made his way into the media room after the game without a valid press pass by telling security guards that he was running late. If you were watching CBS before the game aired on Sunday night, you may have noticed another security flub.

CBS This Morning ran a special on security at the Super Bowl and showed viewers what a massive operation it is to keep the biggest sporting event in America safe. As Twitter user @TheSmarmyBum pointed out, CBS also aired the security room’s Wi-Fi login information on national television.

While I’m sure someone noticed the breach and changed the login info, it was still alarming to see. Fortunately, there were no consequences — as was the case with the 9/11 truther. I’m sure things will be a bit more strict next year.
