Plague Spreading through WoW

GamingWord is spreading like the plague regarding a plague that has inadvertantly been carried out of its instance in WoW and brought to the general populace, killing indiscriminately.
Blizzard adds in a new instance, Zul'Gurub. Inside is the god of blood, Hakkar. Well, when you fight him he has a debuff called Corrputed Blood. It does like 250-350 damage to palyers and affects nearby players. The amazing thing is SOME PLAYERS have brought this disease (and it is a disease) back to the towns, outside of the instance. It starts spreading amongst the genral population including npcs, who can out generate the damage. Some servers have gotten so bad that you can't go into the major cities without getting the plague (and anyone less than like level 50 nearly immediately die).

GM's even tried quarantining players in certain areas, but the players kept escaping the quarentine and infect other players.
If WoW GM's are attempting to quarantine players, then that can only mean this was not an expected result. Wonder how long this will run rampant and players will take advantage of the effect before Blizzard has a chance to shut it down?
