Just an update: the owner of WoW+ at ownedcore.com denies involvement

Also, is this still happening? Is it happening only on Twisting Nether EU, or other servers? If on other servers, is it happening on US realms as well?
My guess is a GM gone rogue.
EDIT: Apparently it is happening on multiple servers, although Twisting Nether was the most severe. There were also apparently several level 1 trials that were seemingly hacking.
Jadd, the owner of the WoW + hacks also posted this on ownedcore:
EDIT2: I have seen some forum posts on the European general forums saying that this is happening on US servers as well, although no one is mentioning which ones.Originally Posted by Jadd

Yes, it was WoW+. Jadd, the owner of the hack, just admitted:
So, it looks like it was a team of people doing it. Apparently, the credit for the hack goes to a user named "Cen01", who was also responsible for the mass server crashing hack 2 weeks ago.Originally Posted by Jadd
And while the screenshots in the quote aren't really anything new, this certainly is:
Yep, that is the main culprit right there, the name matches with what people were reporting on the forums, and what other screenshots were going. That was posted by a user named "Master674"
Cen01 also mysteriously made a post in a thread 4 hours ago (just before the hacking started):
So the exploit seen in that video DID have something to do with it, and this was all a planned event by a group of hackers from ownedcore, possibly headed by the same person who caused mass server crashing 2 weeks ago. Frankly, I think Blizzard really needs to crack down on this, and probably pursue legal action (particularly over the server crashing stuff).Originally Posted by Cen01

Awwww I thought it was the return of "Martin Fury."
I'm guessing this is why the realms are being restarted
lol well blizz did say they didn't want us just sitting around in the major cities.
Earlier today, I randomly dismounted in the air and died. Thought it was just a bug or something but /shrug.
