Plague hits World of Warcraft

The MMORPG World of Warcraft, has been hit by a virtual plague that has swept through some of the servers.

World of Warcraft has become the largest online game in the world with thousands of players worldwide.

In the newly added Zul’Gurub Dungeon there is a high level boss named Hakkar, the Blood God. Hakkar hits his enemies with “corrupted blood” infection that can kill low level characters instantly.
Players managed to transfer the infection into a virtual pet on the game and then went to the Orc city of Ogrimmar and the plague spread from character to character killing many. Blizzard have reset the few servers affected and released minor patches, but they are unsure if it has been fixed totally.
