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

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.
