"While gamers certainly have attempted to exploit the massively popular game before, this appears to be the first time users could maliciously shut down the servers using an exploit. Such flaws hold a serious risk of frustrating users to the point of leaving the protection of their house and burning their skin in the harmful rays of the sun. "

Hur hur hur.

Now I'm left itching to know what the exploit was.

Something like;
1. Create Arena team
2. Invite someone to Arena team
3. Log off
4. Person accepts invite

2. Invite somebody to the arena Team
3. LOG OUT

Isn't an exploit something you're supposed to benefit from (in game that is)?

No, an exploit is abusing any bug, for any reason - i.e. exploiting the fact it exists.
