World of Warcraft cities hacked

Hackers have targeted the online adventure game, World of Warcraft
(WoW) this month. The hackers were able to create a character that could
destroy all other characters- including those controlled by the game.

Olivia Grace, contributing editor of website WoW Insider, said: “It was a
significant hack. They discovered a method to roll a level-one [beginner]
character, which ran to the major cities.

“We don’t know exactly what they did, but somehow they were able to
kill every single player’s character in that city and every single computer
controlled character – and they were doing this repeatedly.”

Game creator Blizzard Activision has already resolved
the issue and hot fixed it so it cannot be repeated. The game has over
10million subscribers across the world, with the majority of players believed
to be in china.
