The Montana Television Network has admitted that a hacker broke into their Emergency Alert System at a KRTV affiliate studio.

During regular programming, the familiar screeching sounds of the emergency alert system rang followed by a man announcing that, “Authorities in your area have reported that the bodies of the dead are rising from their graves, and attacking the living.”

After the fact, the network has said there was no emergency and its engineers are investigating the hacking. 

Video of the incident was captured and uploaded onto YouTube by ctbadboy23, and has already garnered over 575,000 views. The story has been further featured on NYDailyNews, RawStory, and Gawker.
