    URGENT - change your username / password - 1000 accounts compromised!

    This have also caught the attention of Notch at minecraft.net so i wonder why noone posts it here, having 3000+
    servers, with people using also outside servers, admins might want to let their users know. so here it is..

    Some plugins where compromised by malisous people..
    full article here..

    List of Minecraft Account Passwords Found in the Wild and Server Security Issues | Bukkit Forums

    We urge everyone in the Minecraft community to change their Minecraft.net passwords ASAP. Please read below for tips on how to create a better password before doing so.

    It recently came to our attention that a list of approximately 1,000 Minecraft account names and passwords were made freely available on the internet. We believe this list consists of information collected by a group of malicious users from a well known "griefing team". How the information in this list was obtained is not sure, but we suspect they collected them through the use of hacked clients that pretend to only give you extra features like flying or seeing through blocks but actually send your account information to the creators as well.
    To see if you're one of the people on the list, use this site:http://dinnerbone.com/minecraft.php

    If your password gets changed just reset it via your email. If you use the same password on your email and your account, then...yeh, your a bit silly.

    Ermmm, I never said change your email, I said request a password request via email. I think that's what you're trying to say...I don't really understand you.

    I didn't say anyone was lying, either.

    What he meant was if someone can change your password on mc.net they can easily change your email address. This means you can't retrieve the changed password of even request a new one!

    1000 accounts is barely any. Don't see the need for a sticky.

    It had nothing to do with the programmers working on the game

    People basically took advantage of the modding community surrounding minecraft and release there own mods which also sent your account info to the creators.

    If you don't accept any 3rd party launchers you're fine.
