Zombie Alert on Emergency Alert System

Some local station in Montana got hacked, so its Emergency Alert System went on. The message displayed on the air was, “the bodies of the dead are rising from their graves and attacking the living.”

Because of multiple copyrights involved, and because the video might get yanked off of YouTube at any moment, I won’t embed the video. The link is:

Obviously, this could be an inside job. Or, if the default password for such systems is “password” and nobody changes it, that makes it vulnerable. This was a gag, but what if a terrorist group gave false directions to people that all is well after a terror attack, or instructed people to gather at a certain public building, and then set off a bomb there?


As a nice touch, the last message was, “This station will now cease transmission, so please use your battery-powered radio.”

Oh my goodness! That was epic. Holy cow! I can't stop laughing. Oh Montanta, what would we do without you?
