A Montana television station’s regular programming was interrupted by news of a zombie apocalypse.
The Montana Television Network says hackers broke into the Emergency Alert System of Great Falls affiliate KRTV and its CW station last Monday.
KRTV says on its website the hackers broadcast that ‘‘dead bodies are rising from their graves’’ in several Montana counties.
The alert claimed the bodies were ‘‘attacking the living’’ and warned people not to ‘‘approach or apprehend these bodies as they are extremely dangerous.’’
While the news was presumably terrifying for the television viewers, it was a prank for the ages. Very well done prankster!
