A recent World of Warcraft hack by certain individuals has resulted in the major cities of certain realms becoming instant death traps for all players and NPCs in them.
WoW Insider reported that the problem was happening to players in Stormwind, Orgrimmar, Tarren Mill, Ragnaros, Draenor, and Twisting Nether on certain realms. Blizzard has since issued a hotfix that repairs the exploit and now cities are once again safe to enter. The developer has asked for anyone who has information regarding the hack to contact them at email@example.com.
An official statement reads:
“Earlier today, certain realms were affected by an in-game exploit, resulting in the deaths of player characters and non-player characters in some of the major cities. This exploit has already been hotfixed, so it should not be repeatable. It’s safe to continue playing and adventuring in major cities and elsewhere in Azeroth.
As with any exploit, we are taking this disruptive action very seriously and conducting a thorough investigation. If you have information relating to this incident, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We apologise for the inconvenience some of you experienced as a result of this and appreciate your understanding.”
