What is dead body spam?
Dead body spam, also known as corpse graffiti, is a message in a video game that's spelled out with dead characters. Quite often the message is simply a URL directing the player to a website that sells virtual assets, such as gold, for use in the game. To create dead body spam, the spammer uses bots and game hacks to generate, manipulate and kill character avatars so that they die in positions that will spell out the desired URL. Dead body spam first appeared in World of Warcraft (WoW), a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) by Blizzard Entertainment. The ploy is unpopular with legitimate gamers.
