WoW towns turns into mass grave

World of Warcraft players may have encountered piles and piles of skeletons as they played the other day. Though this site is uncommon to WoW players, but gamers have reported that they have indeed seen these odd sights during their game.

According to reports, hackers were able to breach and find an exploit that enabled them to kill every non-player character or every player for that matter in two towns in the game, Orgrimmar and Stormwind.

WoW developer Blizzard was able to fix the exploit after they found out that there indeed was an attack to their system.

According to community manager Nethaera in an forum post, “We apologize for the inconvenience some of you experienced as a result of this and appreciate your understanding.”

The killing spree occurred after developers weren’t able to detect an exploit that allows level one characters access to the kill commands for every player and computer controlled characters of the game in the area.

One of those who were responsible for the hack told Eurogamer, “We didn’t do any permanent damage.”

“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,” he added.

  1. I remember a similar situation happening with League of Legends. Someone hacked into LoL and gathered millions of players data, then eventually made a website where people could pay real cash to cause problems (disconnects and playing issues) to the other team during a live match and thus win the match easily.
