Terrorists Using World of Warcaft

On of the things that always struck me about the current datamining models the Administration is using that they miss completely obvious lines of communication. For example in order to make MMORPG’s secure and prevent people from using third party tools improve their game performance, most companies have securely encrypted almost all communications to prevent packet sniffing.

In doing so they have created the perfect and secure communication system for any would be terrorist cell. WOW is a perfect example because they have taken such active measures to make their system secure from 3rd part programs. It’s also the mos popular thus making sure the information fog is sufficient to cover their communications. Very easily discussing the best way to slay the dragon can become the best way to beat the Great Satan. This is a natural vector for secure communications and it wouldn’t surprise me one bit if someone out there was using WOW this way.
