Super Bowl's SUPER BALLSUP: CBS broadcasts Wi-Fi password

Not so top secret, huh?

Double Facepalm; when one facepalm is not enough.

The Super Bowl's security nerve centre was billed as a "secret, first of its kind" unit.

But that claim was kicked into touch out of bounds after CBS accidentally screened the base's Wi-Fi password.

CBS show This Morning was screening a report on the super strict security operation when the camera panned across the room to reveal a user called Marko's system password.

Just to add insult to injury, the password was rubbish, featuring the word "welcome" with a few numbers.

The gaffe was quickly spotted by the eagle-eyed folk on Reddit.

El Reg would assume the password has been changed by now. ®
