It's the Corrupted Blood Incident!
The virtual plague spread through the game in September of 2005 when the raid Zul'Gurub was released. The raid's final boss, Hakkar, cast a debuff spell called Corrupted Blood that would kill a player slowly over time. The spell was only supposed to affect characters within the confines of the raid instance, but players' pets and minions were somehow able to carry the affliction past the instance's boundaries. This resulted in players, both knowingly and unknowingly, spreading the plague throughout Azeroth and killing many low-level players, until a patch was released to fix the bug. Epidemiologists and terrorism experts have studied the event as a way to understand how humans might respond to an epidemic in the real world.
