Weather Channel Hit By Malicious Software Attack

The Weather Channel has issued an apology to viewers after going off the air yesterday morning due to what the channel calls a “malicious software attack.” The network was off air for around an hour and a half before anchors could explain what happened when they returned.

The network’s morning show “AMHQ” was due to start at 6am ET, but instead, an episode of “Heavy Rescue: 401” aired. At around 7:40am, things were up and running again, and anchors Jim Cantore and Stephanie Abrams explained the technical difficulties.

“We experienced issues with this morning’s live broadcast following a malicious software attack on the network,” the channel writes in a statement posted to Twitter. “Federal law enforcement is actively investigating the issue. We apologize for any inconvenience to viewers as we work to resolve the matter.”
