Submission + - False Alert: Dead Not Rising From Graves (

DeviceGuru writes: On Monday, an anonymous hacker hijacked a Montana TV station's Emergency Alert System and warned viewers of an ongoing zombie incident, in which 'the bodies of the dead are rising from their graves and attacking the living.' The phony alert, which interrupted a teen cheaters segment of The Steve Wilkos Show, advised viewers not "to approach or apprehend these bodies as they are considered extremely dangerous.' A short YouTube video of the incident is available here. Serious, the very fact that the Emergency Alert System can be hacked so easily is scary enough!
