“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 become available. Do not attempt to approach or apprehend these bodies as they are considered extremely dangerous.”

This past Monday, two stations in Marquette, Michigan had their emergency alert system hacked!  The alert above was sent out talking about varies zombie attacks in the Upper Peninsula.

One of the stations that fell victim to the hack was WBUP.  Their stations manager and news director, Cynthia Thompson, released this statement:

“On behalf of ABC 10, please know that our personnel are working diligently to close any gaps in our security systems that could allow this to reoccur and to lock out any further intrusions,”

The other station that got hacked was WNMU and their station manager said that the hacker has been caught overseas. Luckily, they have corrected the problem in their security system.
