+ - EAS Boxes hacked, Fake Emergency Alert Broadcast->

Submitted by Netdoctor
Netdoctor (95217) writes "Well it's finally happened.

The last few years has seen FEMA implimenting IPAWS which requires hardware boxes to manage local and national EAS alerts.

  If you slap these boxes right on the Internet, without a firewall, and without changing the default login, anybody with a net connection might get in and send an emergency notification to everyone in the state.

This has the actual broadcast alert, which someone just picked up from this video."
