The US state of Montana was in put in emergency alert after hackers broadcast a zombie apocalypse on a local TV station.

Montana’s KRTV station had its emergency alert system hacked and broadcast with the words “bodies of the dead are rising from their graves” and “attacking the living”.

Speaking on its website, KRTV released the following statement: “Someone apparently hacked into the Emergency Alert System and announced on KRTV and the CW that there was an emergency in several Montana counties. This message did not originate from KRTV, and there is no emergency.”

Phew! Glad that is over! But how freaked out would you be if you heard this?
