Is this downtime the result of the hackers?

First of all, what happened wasn't "Hacking" a couple of nerdy german dudes EXPLOITED a weakness on a few servers. That's not hacking.

Have you considered that Video Footage is simply a Private Server? Lol


Look around on other forums or on MMO, this is real, some people writing about it really lived (or died) it.


Fortunately by default screen shots include your account ID and realm IP. you just have to look around the web for those captured by the WoW client itself.

Perhaps the hackers are hacking blizzard itself, i've seen people's posts on D3 having problems as well.


D3 is nothing but problems....

This silence is not encouraging in the least. We had this morning's hack and now the login servers mysteriously. I woudn't take any chances, I would call my credit card company.

As usual in situations such as this, Blizzard has its head up its butt.
Maybe while they're hacking the game, they can balance the classes. They might do a better job than GC and co. lol
I like chickens.... Sorry, way to serious on here :)

Its multiple videos, some with US wow servers, and on multiple creditable websites.

It is not evidence of a hack. It might be a bug/exploit. There is a big difference between the 2 and only Blizz knows what happened.

Since the Blue post about the insident had a ":)" in it, I'm less inclined to think they would be all smiles over a hack.

Edit:

I can't believe the guy made a video of it and posted it. Nice to see his other videos too. Seems like he is just constantly up to no good.

He may has caused havoc but I highly doubt he will get away with it with all the trails he left.
Shame I used all my tinfoil on those baked potatoes last night.

Seems we are incapable, please enlighten us.

Only blue post i see are the ones about the connection issues
I think the fact that this is so publicized is rather moronic. The more spew being vomitted, the more likely it is these idiots will be caught and when they do, they can ask themselves, was it still worth it?

More likely executing protected LUA routines on an account they didn't care about.

The hope is that the person is prosecuted.

about 3/4 of the way down the page that is why this thread was made
put your password in wrong it will not connect then lol
We all deserve cloud serpents.
It's just people who get a kick out of exploiting using third party programs to grief people. THere was no hacking involved unless the account(s) they were using happened to be hacked.
