On Sunday, several World of Warcraft servers were attacked by hackers. These nefarious individuals were able to exploit a flaw in the game and kill scores of other players instantaneously.
Naturally, they used their insta-kill ability in the capital cities. They strolled right through Orgrimmar and Stormwind and just gibbed every player character and non-player character in sight. You can see the carnage for yourself in the videos below.
Blizzard confirmed on the Battle.net forums that this was an "exploit." Furthermore, they've already hotfixed it. You should be free to dance on mailboxes in the capital cities like you usually do.
It's not clear who was responsible for the mass killings or why they did it. Blizzard says that they're taking the exploit seriously and are investigating it now. Players with information related to the attacks should email firstname.lastname@example.org.
