A mass slaughter of World of Warcraft players has devastated the popular online roleplaying game.
Hackers were somehow able to gain control of the game and kill characters at will.
Normally players of WoW are unable to kill each other unless they each agree to a dual, but the hackers worked out how to override those protections.
The slaughter saw entire cities wiped out across Azeroth – the world of, well, Warcraft. The populations of Stormwind, Orgrimmar, Tarren Mill, Ragnaros, Draenor and Twisting Nether were put to the hackers’ sword.

Pretty funny. I liked it better when people just found exploits and kited world bosses into the city. Hacking the code has so much less panache.
