Hackers massacre thousands instantly in World of Warcraft

There have been mass deaths in the cities of World of Warcraft. Piles and piles of skeletons littered the floors around the murderers - level 1 characters who killed everything, players and AI characters alike, without lifting a finger.

How did they do that? "A kill hack," explained one of the perpetrators on a forum I tracked down easily but probably shouldn't link to.

"We didn't do any permanent damage," the bringer of death retaliated. "Some people liked it for a new topic of conversation and a funny stream to watch, and some people didn't. The people who didn't should be blaming Blizzard for not fixing it faster (four hours of obvious use is sad).

"It's not like I added 20,000,000 gold to everyone's inventory and broke the economy, but look at the big Chinese gold seller companies who are doing this every day. Now ask yourself who is really ruining the game. It's not us.

"That's my justification," the posted ended.

1. Not as funny as when

Blizzard messed up on an actual plague and jokers spread it all throughout Azeroth, killing almost every single lower level character in the game instantly. Still amusing, though.
