FEMA Warning: Emergency Alert System Devices Could be Hacked

Article Source: Jonathan Greig from The Record.


The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) issued a warning this week to participants in the emergency alert system (EAS) that vulnerabilities can be used to allow threat actors to issue alerts over TV, radio, and cable networks.


FEMA strongly encouraged EAS participants to make sure that their devices and supporting systems are up to date with all security patches and protected by a firewall. They also asked that all EAS devices and supporting systems are monitored and audit logs are “regularly reviewed looking for unauthorized access.”
