The foolproof Emergency Alert System

Not exactly:

On Monday, hackers were responsible for broadcasting bogus emergency messages warning TV viewers of an imminent zombie invasion. It’s a series of intrusions that underscore the vulnerability of the nation’s public warning system.

“Civil authorities in your area have reported that the bodies of the dead are rising from the grave and attacking the living,” stated one warning broadcast over KRTV in Great Falls, Montana, according to Reuters. It went on to warn viewers not “to approach or apprehend these bodies as they are extremely dangerous.”
