Exploit Shuts Down AH - Diablo 3 - MMORPG.com

Blizzard has shut down the Diablo III auction houses due to a gold exploit that has brought the in-game economy to its knees. The 1.08 patch went live on Tuesday with the exploit quickly discovered.

According to a Battle.net post, many players now have billions in gold and one player has amassed 371 trillion gold through the exploitation. A NeoGAF forum member wrote that when Blizzard dropped the gold floor from $0.25 a million to $0.25 cents per 10 million "players then bought gems for real money and converted them to gold," and then the gold dupe was discovered with "some streamers duping TRILLIONS."
