According to reports on the official World of Warcraft forums and other communities, disgruntled WoW players are bringing down Blizzard’s servers by use of a simple script. Crashes have plagued the World of Warcraft community in the last day – with servers repeatedly going offline.
We’ve managed to track down the exploit, which was posted to a popular WoW
hacking website, and can confirm that it’s extremely simple to use. The
WoW community have reported being disconnected as often as twice a
minute because of this hack.
The hack’s creator justified their actions by stating that “Blizzard made me angry.”
Only moments ago Blizzard applied a hotfix which will hopefully address the issue. We’ll keep you updated.
