Anonymous Hacks Into Terre Haute Radio Station And Hijacks Broadcast Signal
There's a disturbing story out of Terre Haute about a hacking incident at a local FM radio station, WXXR, yesterday evening. According to WTHI-TV, the hackers identified themselves as "Anonymous" and commandeered the station's broadcast for a 30-minute message that began around 7:30 p.m. "We are unaware of where the broadcast origin is," Doug Kirkman told WTHI-TV. "It did actually appear to be coming underneath our actual signal. When we looked at our computers and everything at the broadcast station, everything appeared normal though it was quite obviously not normal." The news report did not describe the content of the message intended for the American people.
