    - Client reports dealing (Total HP -1) damage > Server verifies this, then applies this to the mob, and then reports it > Other clients see this data in the form of the mobs HP dropping

    It shouldn't ever be;
    - Client reports dealing (Total HP -1) damage > Server accepts this input regardless of access or permissions > Other clients see this data

    It was a good thought, but unfortunately not correct in this case.
    That's what I thought too until i started to play battlefield and realized that clients can just tell the server that they killed someone with knife anywhere on the map... I'm sure even if WoW is not a FPS they do it too in a few (encrypted and obfuscated) instances because of network performance issues. And for what it's worth I still think it would count as "hacking the server" because you send it invalid data that it reacts (badly) upon.

    So don't do it kids!

    Has to be. They will have hot fixed it immediately and performed rolling restarts.

    By your logic, I can jump the fence at Disneyland, go on a few rides, then leave. If I have fun Disney won't mind.

    It's hard to prosecute hackers because they are often outside the US, in countries that don't have anti-hacking laws or countries that won't extradite offenders.

    Off topic slightly but I never knew there were programs still out there that allowed things such as teleporting. Saw this in one of the mass kill videos.

    That would be phasing, most areas in pandaland are phased, especially vale of eternal blossoms, I saw that yesterday where an invisible warrior was attacking the cricket man there, common sense m r hard.

    Wow. Both times a cool exploit happens (this and DKs killing everyone), I have no idea about it, and by the time I learn about it... it's already been fixed. Dammit.

    looks like the hacker has to be within a certain range to kill someone, won't be long before they are able to work out a way to extend that range. It'll be like log in - world dead - wait for them to respawn - grief some more - next server...

    its a little funny now but unless blizzard fix this a lot of people will be pissed off. This totally reminds me of the southpark esp. "my kids are on that server!" "they are already dead"
    "you can't be serious!!" - yes actually I am.

    i have a question. Could you use this hack to get a world first?

    so, its pretty easy to find out how to do this. i dont think it will be fixed for long considering the method used to do this.

    Rogue GM is a possibility. Some of them are fucking tools who know less about the game than semi decent players.

    caerful with that video, it quite clearly shows how the hack was done.
    it may have been fixed now, but it was done using a 3rd party client, so it probably wont take that long to find a new way of doing it. the tool used to do this has been around a long time and used for a long time, but this is the first time ive heard/seen it used like this.reading from another forum, they were using it to farm baradin hold because the bosses dropped a lot of gold, and one of them got banned earlier today, so they realised blizzard caught on and went on a bit of a rampage before they all got banned. unverified source though.

    this has to be one of the fastest response times I've ever seen from blizzard.
