Fighting 4H. Doesn't sound relevant though--happened to other people at the same time, some not in the guild, or even in the same zone.
Basically, a whole bunch of people dc'ed simultaneously, all reporting a WoW crash. While trying to log back in, exactly the same set of people again dc'ed simultaneously. Disabling addons didn't do anything.
Posting a link from an obscure exploit/bug website onto one of the most heavily trafficked guild websites is not smart.
Blizzard won't tolerate people doing this, and the culprits will be blatantly obvious to their server logs since its using chat channels. I would not be surprised if they respond with permanent account bans, since its clear harassment of their customers and disruption of server stability.
Well, I guess most of us have at some point experienced people who were crashing whenever you messaged them a certain word/character. I still have fond memories of the days when our MT would disconnect if anyone in whispers or warrior channel would use [%] in any context. This was mod-related and he got rid of it by removing chat event monitor.
By the sound of it, this exploit is much the same, with the exception that the software to make someone vulnerable is downloaded on the side of the "attacker" rather than the victim, meaning that random people won't be safe and you can basically trash their raids as much as you like.
Any word on why it appears only part of your members were vulnerable to it?
