Zombie Apocalypse Warning Issued on Montana TV Station

This one is just too funny not to report.

Apparently a Montana TV station (KRTV) was hacked, resulting in one of those Emergency Broadcast System messages that declared that the undead were rising from their graves…seriously.

“The bodies of the dead are rising from their graves and are attacking the living,” said the emergency announcer on the TV station. “Do not attempt to approach or apprehend these bodies, as they are considered extremely dangerous.”

The TV station, has of course, released a statement about the hack, stating:

Someone apparently hacked into the Emergency Alert System and announced on KRTV and the CW that “dead bodies are rising from their graves” in several Montana counties.

This message did not originate from KRTV, and there is no emergency.

Our engineers are investigating to determine what happened and if it affected other media outlets.

Apparently there is no zombie apocalypse.  Oh well.
