Emergency Alert System Hacked

Someone apparently hacked into the Emergency Alert System and announced on KRTV and the CW that "dead bodies are rising from their graves" in several Montana counties.

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

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

Since you have no clue how EAS works, don't say it can't be done.

With the right access (some are still open to dial-up access, I'm sure with default passwords) and software (which can be found on the net), it can be hacked.

Any EAS station can generate test messages and every video and radio broadcaster, video provider headend, and many government agencies are various forms of EAS stations. Lots of points for access and most are remotely accessible.

You just have to find something like this to hack on or an available input interface for it:
»eas.trilithic.com/products/easycap.html

EAS alerts can be input multiple ways...

...or now that I think of it, it wouldn't be too difficult to setup a small pirate radio station to fake a EAS radio alert near a known EAS receiver that is REQUIRED to pass it it on. The equipment can all be bought surplus since there is alot being sold or tossed as the EAS system is being revamped over the last few years.

Two other stations have been reportedly affected by this breach, which to at least one source the connection terminated overseas (my guess a proxy):

- WBUP-TV
- WNMU-TV (ABC 10)

What's the motive for doing that? I suppose you have some sort of poor-man's Reichstag fire scenario in mind.

Christ, but you don't half spew some crap.
