World of Warcraft Plague

On one of the podcasts I listen to, this WEEK in TECH, reported that a plague has broken out in the online game, World of Warcraft. According to the podcast, players contract this "plague" when fighting a certain, powerful enemy in the game. When they contract the disease, their health starts dropping rapidly, and, when they die, they explode, infecting everyone around them. This was bad enough while fighting this enemy, but some players survived long enough to return to a town. Once in town, they eventually died and infected everyone around them, including some NPC's (non-playable characters; characters that are controlled by the computer).
