World of Warcraft Duping Exploit Found
8:18 AM | Blake Buck | Comment on this story

Slashdot recently posted an article about a newly found exploit for World of Warcraft, a online roleplaying game by Blizzard Entertainment. Yesterday morning, rumors began to crop up surrounding a duping (item duplication) exploit in World of Warcraft. The trick seems to involve trading items before entering certain instanced areas on certain servers during laggy times of gameplay. After getting disconnected, one could log back in and still have the item he or she traded away. While the chance for success is supposedly very small, the payoff could potentially be very large.

While Blizzard has not commented on the exploit, it is logical to assume this problem will be dealt with in the very immediate future. IMG will have more news on the next Blizzard patch as it develops.
