Mischievous hackers have broadcast a Zombie apocalypse warning over The Steve Wilkos show, on the Montana Television Network.
The voice over warned:
‘Civil authorities in your area have reported that the bodies of the dead are rising from their graves and attacking the living. Follow the messages on screen that will be updated as information becomes available. Do not attempt to approach or apprehend these bodies as they are considered extremely dangerous.’
The message was removed and an apology was made:
‘Someone apparently hacked into the emergency alert system and announced on KRTV and the CW that there was an emergency 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.’
The fake alert prompted four people to phone the police in response.
