WoW Hax0r Crackdown

The World of Warcraft Community Site (thanks HomeLAN Fed) announces the banning of several World of Warcraft accounts due to the use of a speed hack cheat. They describe a "zero tolerance policy" in regards to situations like this, and warn that future cheaters will be banned outright in a similar manner.

It's sort of concerning to me. The game has just hit retail for less than a month and there are already hacks for the game that work. Is it a sign of things to come, or a blip on the radar?

The speed hack is a standard hack that is used in other games. There's really nothing special about it. They speed up the packets that are being sent to Blizzard. This has been done in other MMORPGs as well, such as DAoC. It is detectable on the server, however. As for how fast it showed up, remember that the beta test lasted a long time. They could easily have been working on it and just not release it until after beta was over. The crackers who wrote it probably know better than to use it in the middle of a fight. It's the idiots who activate it in the middle of a fight they are losing. Big duh to them.

I'm glad they were all banned. I hope more use it and get banned. Less people on my server is a good thing.
