So, did anyone just have half their raid crash with "Stack overflow"?

Fighting 4H. Doesn't sound relevant though--happened to other people at the same time, some not in the guild, or even in the same zone.
Uh, what were you doing at the time?
Basically, a whole bunch of people dc'ed simultaneously, all reporting a WoW crash. While trying to log back in, exactly the same set of people again dc'ed simultaneously. Disabling addons didn't do anything.

But on a more serious note, does the chat actually show up as text or does it just disconnect people?

Blizzard won't tolerate people doing this, and the culprits will be blatantly obvious to their server logs since its using chat channels. I would not be surprised if they respond with permanent account bans, since its clear harassment of their customers and disruption of server stability.

There's no need for a link to a place to download what enables the exploit.
add the following lines to your "World of Warcraft\WTF\Config.wtf" file and you will be immune to this crash exploit.
SET readContest "-1"
SET readScanning "-1"
SET spamFilter "0"
SET profanityFilter "0"

I loved that bug. I spent a few happy hours miles above Ironforge before it got fixed.
Never had the balls to exploit with it... I was even too scared to get into the Ironforge Airport :)

By the sound of it, this exploit is much the same, with the exception that the software to make someone vulnerable is downloaded on the side of the "attacker" rather than the victim, meaning that random people won't be safe and you can basically trash their raids as much as you like.
Any word on why it appears only part of your members were vulnerable to it?
