Dead bodies are rising from their graves': Hackers break into TV station's emergency alert system to warn viewers of a zombie apocalypse live on air



TV viewers in Montana briefly thought the zombie apocalypse was being televised on Monday.
During the Steve Wilkos show on KRTV, pranksters hacked into the local station's emergency announcement system and warned that the 'bodies of the dead are rising from their graves.'
In the middle of a 'Teen Cheaters Take Lie Detectors' episode an emergency message scrolled across the screen, accompanied by an eerie alarm signal.
This was followed by a deep and calm, but obviously fake, computerized voice intoning that the bodies were 'attacking the living.'

It would be hilarious except I am sure there are idiots out there with their zombie apocalypse gear running amok. Another conspiracy is born.

Oh, I thought this was another Omen. I thought maybe that was why the Pope had resigned, so that he could hurriedly flick through the book of Revelation to see what he could expect next. Any sign of any beasts with seven heads yet?

Life is a hideous business, and from the background behind what we know of it peer daemoniacal hints of truth which make it sometimes a thousandfold more hideous.

Pranks like this are dangerous. What will people think when the zombies do rise? 'Just another zombie hoax, ho-him.' DO THESE PRANKSTERS NOT UNDERSTAND THE DANGERS?!

War of the worlds, at least there was no major panic.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

Have you seen the video where the people who do the make up etc for walking dead, did their magic on people in NY and they walked around all "zombied up". lol

I laughed at some peoples lack of reaction. I mena can you imagine if it actually did happen, how many people would die instantly becuase they wouldn't register it. lol

Maybe the people who didn't react were the real zombies.  *du-du-duuuuun!* :P  Seriously though, I've seen people walk around who were in their own little world, with faceless expressions and daydream stares, not paying attention or knowing if they were about to be hit by a Mac truck or fall off the edge somewhere.  Makes you wonder.

I could tell it was a hoax in the first sentence, But yeah I didnt see it live. I do however keep a zombie gun available for just this sort of reason. And another reason why the 2nd Amendment should be left alone. (excuse the shameless plug)

If it where to happen, in the UK it sucks for us.

We can only choose between Bows and knives, swords and axes etc.

Saying that, you never run out of ammo with melee.
