Emergency Alert System was hacked
A couple of weeks ago residents in Michigan and Montana were alerted with a false message from the Emergency Alert System. The hacker sent a warning for the impending zombiepocalypse.
Here is a video of the alert seen by many:
At about 8:36 p.m. Monday the stations were interrupted with EAS warnings with a message scrolling across the bottom of the screen, proclaiming ”dead bodies are rising from their graves.” The alert claimed the bodies were “attacking the living.”
A hacker set up an alert that zombies were coming on some TV stations.
- ABC 10
- CW 5
- WNMU-TV 13 at Northern Michigan University
- Great Falls, Montana station KRTV
- Two other unnamed stations
