Hacking Police Posters with QR Codes

You trust me – Scan my QR code

Police are introducing new forms of technology without fully understanding the risks.  Bad guys can place a malicious QR code sticker overtop the police QR code and change the wanted poster.  Unsuspecting users trusting the police will scan the QR code with their smartphone and get infected with a virus or worse get their smartphone hacked.
