ABC 10 has apparently been the target of an attack by hackers who took control of the emergency alert system. The hackers posted a bizarre message that ran across the bottom of the TV screen about bodies rising from the dead. This strange situation has happened at several other TV stations.
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.
We’ve made contact with state cyber crime authorities who will help us investigate this incident.
Again, our apologies to those of you who were scared, shocked or confused.
…..Station Manager/News Director Cynthia Thompson.
