If you thought you could evade the National Security Agency (NSA) and its British counterpart, the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) by slipping into an online multiplayer game, think again: Both agencies have infiltrated "World of Warcraft"
This is funny, since in WoW you could just go off to some out of the way place and just use say or join a channel, or even just use whispers to have a secure conversation. WoW traffic is encrypted to keep people from hacking the game. (Back in the early days, there was some sort of hack that gave rogues permanent sprint and 100% crit by hacking the traffic stream. Blizzard started encrypting the traffic at that point.) Spies within WoW would be almost useless.
man i wish my previous pc's hdd hadn't crashed, they said they were going to do this back in 2003 right before they invaded iraq. wouldn't surprise me if the nsa had been doing this since 1995 when clinton enacted all the backdoor policy laws at the request of mr 'i invented the internet' VPOTUS Gore senate president right before the big GPS and DMCA push.
