WoW as a terrorist training tool

Apparently the Australian had a story up about terrorists using games such as WoW as a tool. The direct link to the story now gives a 404 error (those pesky terrorists!), but enough folks out there have quoted the story for the gist of the story to be available:

Kevin Zuccato, head of the Australian High Tech Crime Centre in Canberra, says terrorists can gain training in games such as World of Warcraft in a simulated environment, using weapons that are identical to real-world armaments.

Zuccato told an Australian Security Industry Association conference in Sydney that people intent on evil no longer had to travel to the target they wanted to attack to carry out reconnaissance. He said they could use virtual worlds to create an exact replica and rehearse an entire attack online, including monitoring the response and ramifications.

Of course the general forums are having a field day:

Zlampshade on Garithos: Make sure you have 5 sunders before assassinating the political leader.

Nou on Uther: [1. General] [Somenoob]: Hay Guyz Where is the WMD vendor in Stormwind?

Linna on Feathermoon has some handy boss strats: Make sure you stay within melee range of Cheney at all times. If CC breaks on him he will use his shotgun. Once the fight starts the rest of the raid needs to watch their aggro as Bush is Un-Tauntable.

One other tip. If any of the party gets the “Lame Duck” debuff then that person must move as far away as he/she can from the raid becuse after 4 seconds two waves of Congress will spawn. These are non-elite mobs and need to be tanked away from the casters and healers due to thier constant inturrupts and Fillibuster (sp?) aura.

Ongra on Dath’Remar:

Terrorist training = COT Durnholde keep

Advanced terrorist training = Heroic Durnholde
