World of Warcraft Gets Nuked

by Menashe


Yesterday someone found an exploit that allowed him to go flying around, nuking cities across multiple servers. Apparently, Azeroth is not clear of weapons of mass destruction. Luckily, Blizzard seems to got the situation under control… for the time being. It doesn’t seem like Blizzard are so sure of themselves in that regard. Here is the official statement by Blizzard:

“Earlier today, certain realms were affected by an in-game exploit, resulting in the deaths of player characters and non-player characters in some of the major cities. This exploit has already been hotfixed, so it should not be repeatable. It’s safe to continue playing and adventuring in major cities and elsewhere in Azeroth.

As with any exploit, we are taking this disruptive action very seriously and conducting a thorough investigation. If you have information relating to this incident, please email hacks@blizzard.com. We apologize for the inconvenience some of you experienced as a result of this and appreciate your understanding.”

This isn’t the first time such an event has happened. Once in a while, glitches or exploits are discovered that allow users to take advantage of the system. I don’t know if anyone has ever had “nuking powers” though, until yesterday.
