It woulds seem that recently a fair few amount of Minecraft accounts have been hacked. None of our community seems to have been visibly hit, although there's a possibility that this could have affected some of our players. It seems that Mojang's Minecraft.net login system has been having some strange issues allowing people's passwords to be obtained. The start of any incidents involving the hacked accounts seem to have involved griefing on servers, among other things.Planet Minecraft's research seems to show that Minecraft.net accounts are vulnerable, while Mojang.com ones are less so. If you currently have a Minecraft.net account (meaning you login to the Minecraft laucher using your username), then it's recommend that you migrate it to a Mojang account (meaning you login with your email). You can do this at https://account.mojang.com/migrate.Another tip is to use a different password for everything, as using the same password for everything is never a good idea. If you suspect that you could have been hacked, or want to be extra cautious then change your password on everything!While it doesn't track everything, I suggest you use this link to check for any suspicious or strange behavior on your account. It'll check for bans on large servers using an external ban system - so if your account has been involved then chances are, it'll be visible here.To recap: while it's unlikely many/any of our community members have been unfortunate enough to be hacked, please take the time to check and to secure your account. It's better to be ready than regretting.Source of most of this: Planet Minecraft downtime PSA message. Click to view if still available.
