Ransomware interrupted a 'The Weather Channel' morning show

On Thursday morning, from 6AM to 7:39AM, viewers weren't able to learn any useful weather information from The Weather Channel . The TV network had to show a taped program instead of airing its morning show AMHQ , because it suffered a security breach that took it off air. In a Twitter post , the company explained that it experienced issues due to a "malicious software attack" and that it was only able to restore live broadcast through backup mechanisms.
