Hackers Deliver Fake Zombie Apocalypse Warning on a US TV Network

So you’re sitting at home in Montana watching the TV and chilling out with you loves ones when your regular programming is interrupted with the news every geek dreads…the Zombies have attacked! However much like H G Wells infamous War of the Worlds broadcast it turned out the broadcast was faked (so put down that shotgun). Seriously you could not make up this story.

According to Sky News hackers got into the  Emergency Alert System of KRTV and broadcast the message that “dead bodies are rising from their graves.” The alert went onto warn that  the Zombies were “attacking the living” and warned people not to “approach or apprehend these bodies as they are extremely dangerous”.

Later the TV network refuted the claims that the dead were indeed rising from the dead with a simple

“This message did not originate from KRTV, and there is no emergency,” KRTV said.

“Our engineers are investigating to determine what happened and if it affected other media outlets.”

All I can say is I may as well close down the Geek Syndicate website now as I can’t see any other news story topping that one.
