    I remember hearing about this from my dad. Though, I would like if the article got more in depth with how the attack worked. Passwords were not reset doesn't really say too much. I guess I'm still a little surprised that EAS systems would be internet accessible in the first place (though, I guess in a ww3 situation it would make sense to be able to get the message out without having to be in the station)...

    I do think the part where one of the interviewees said something along the lines [no one would panic, they'd cross check the source] to be utter garbage. People barely check wikipedia sources. If it's on the news, they are believing it.
    Source: weather forecasts. ;)
