On the night of February 9, a screensaver of a computer with Windows 7 was broadcast on the 45-meter Azadi Tower (Liberty) in Tehran. The monument is called the symbol of the capital of Iran and one of the main monuments of the country.
One of the first to draw attention to the employee of the British organization “Institute of War and Peace Reporting” Reza Akbari (Reza H. Akbari).
As the Iranian security expert suggested , the computer owner forgot to turn it off after the show with a 3D projection on the tower.
Seems like someone has forgotten to turn off the screen saver of their visual arts show. Turning it into free advertisement for MSFT on the most famous and symbolic tower of Iran. Funny how ppl are mocking it by saying “at least install win10” ♂️pic.twitter.com/he4nEwNp0s

The author of the video stressed that the person responsible for the problem should “at least install Windows 10”. Motherboard added that it would be worthwhile to upgrade also for more reliable protection against the Meltdown vulnerability.
