Inside Their CM Accounts, Wreaking Havocs

In case you missed the keylogging hijinks on the World of Warcraft forums, this epic/legendary/gigantor thread covers the details — Blizzard Community Managers Nethaera and Drokthul get keylogged, the lucky bastard hackers use the CM accounts to post more keyloggers, PROFIT!, Blizzard’s Eyonix saves the day by banning the CM accounts, everyone has a good laugh and hugs it out.

True story. Except for the hugging.

(Thanks emailer Byron!)

The image links in that thread are probably dead thanks to the 10 million people clicking wildly to see Neth and Drokthul’s shame. Here you go: Drokthul and Nethaera.

    Wow. Just wow. Ha, loved Eyeonix’s enjoyment of banning them.

    In unrelated news, the Evendim patch notes bowled me over. It took me about an hour to read them; seems like the fixes and new content are coming much faster and in greater quantity than they did with Warcraft if I’m not imagining things. And Patience got kind of punchy in there. :)

    Hhaha! Hugs it out? Did you get that from the office?!?!

    If so.. that episode is hilarious..

    My friend told me he thought it was weird seeing those posts.. and thought keyloggers were going to spread like wildfire… I honestly didn’t believe him at first until I saw what happened!
