Minecraft User Details Stolen


(This Article was written by ShaunB-91 on the OC3D Forums)

According to the German website Heise, hackers have managed to steal more than 1800 German users details which include e-mail addresses and passwords used to login to the game itself.

The stolen information now resides on Pastebin which allows people to use the accounts and affectively play the game for free. Note that at this time, it's only German accounts that are said to be stolen. Therefore, we urge any of our German users with a Minecraft account to change their login details as soon as possible.

Security Analyst Graham Cluley had this to say;


“There is no mention of the security breach on Minecraft’s homepage, but my recommendation would be that if users have any concern that their accounts might be exposed to hackers that they should change their passwords immediately,” said security analyst Graham Cluley. “It goes without saying that they should be particularly concerned if they are using the same password anywhere else on the web.”


As always after any security beach we urge all users to change their passwords for Minecraft (or anywhere which uses the same password) and be wary of any suspicious emails, this applies to all Micecraft users as it is currently unknown if users from other territories, like the US or UK, are affected.

Mojang has a article on how to choose a good password here
