Blizzard's massively successful MMO World of Warcraft is usually known as a fun (and even addictive) way for tons of folks to get together, make cool characters and team up to go on raids. But a researcher who works for a military-funded university seems to believe the game and others like it could be used for terrorism.
Wired has posted up a story about this idea, which was presented by Dr. Dwight Tovas who works at the Pentagon-funded National Defense University. His idea is that terrorist groups could get together virtually in World of Warcraft and train to destroy real world targets. However, there's been no evidence that such activity has happened in the game and analyst Steven Aftergood is quoted as saying, "This concern is out there. But it has to be viewed in context. It's the job of intelligence agencies to anticipate threats and counter them. With that orientation, they're always going to give more weight to a particular scenario than an objective analysis would allow."
