    I wouldn't be so sure. Best kind of game security simply requires best kind of hacking skills. It could be anyone from Annonymus to Marianas Web dwellers.

    Again, it was the creator of WoW+, a wow hacking tool.

    It could also be a group hired by blizzard to attack their system, finding flaws etc - paying them to find the flaws. It's not uncommon. (Tinfoilhat on)

    I'm pretty sure that in that case, the "hackers" would spend their time writing reports, not trolling...

    That was awesome. Did you know back then that scientists used that incident in vanilla to study how an epidemic would spread in the real world since it was all based on human reaction patterns and thus was similar to a real epidemic? How cool is that?

    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:

    Hey it's me! I'm famous! And no, this isn't GM control. It's just another server mechanic exploit.
    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.

    Some people in this very thread posted it was happening on their server (US).

    IMPORTANT:

    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.

    And while the screenshots in the quote aren't really anything new, this certainly is:

    http://i.epvpimg.com/Cjmlb.jpg


    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):

    More videos later.
    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).

    I'm guessing this is why the realms are being restarted

    Earlier today, I randomly dismounted in the air and died. Thought it was just a bug or something but /shrug.
