In Great Falls, Montana, the "The Steve Wilkos Show" was interrupted as an emergency broadcast warned viewers "dead bodies are rising from their graves".
Audio from the regular programing was muted as text scrolled across the top of viewer’s screens, noting areas that were affected by the rising dead. An artificial sounding voice announced that the zombie apocalypse started and warned viewers not to "approach or apprehend these bodies as they are extremely dangerous."
After a few concerned citizens called the local police to find out if zombies were actually spotted, it became clear that the emergency broadcast was a hoax. According to the TV station, hackers broke into their website and created the zombie alert.
Whoever hacked the broadcast company has yet to claim ownership for their stunt but the company says that the attack came from outside their network. Engineers for the company have been tasked with figuring out where the attack came from.
