Remember corrupted blood? Blizzard have done it again, accidentally infecting their servers with another plague. This time, within a week, they have acted to kill it. The ?undead plague? was designed to be highly contagious and, if left untreated, would turn players them into flesh-eating zombies.

The game?s creators faced a torrent of criticism as the disease spread quickly through the game's lands of Azeroth, with some fans arguing that the plague may put off beginners who would not be able to find a cure.

The response of many fans was fierce, with some even comparing Blizzard?s response to the crisis with the US Government?s reaction to Hurricane Katrina.
