Maybe not hacking as such. There's been several times over the years when the GPS systems were set to do this intentionally. The cryptographic signal for military use was still dead on but the rest, not so much with maybe a mile (max) skewing.

Maybe someone leaned on the switch and someday we'll see a "Who Me" article on it.
