World of Warcraft slaughter
If you play it, you're probably not amused. But if you don't, it's kinda funny. At least I thought so.
Hackers have massacred all the virtual characters in some of online adventure game World of Warcraft's major cities.
They appear to have created a character able to destroy those of other players and those controlled by the game.
Game creator Blizzard Activision has appealed for information, but added: "This exploit has already been hot-fixed, so it should not be repeatable."
