Lets talk about password security

HACKORZ


Have you been hacked? What’s going on, Moj?

No! We havent been hacked. A bunch of bad people have tricked some of our users into disclosing their account information. Weve emailed everyone affected, and reset all compromised passwords. If you haven’t received an email from us, you dont need to worry.


No-one has gained access to the Mojang mainframe. Even if they did, we store your passwords in a super encrypted format. Honestly, you dont need to panic.


So how did they get the info? You were hacked, werent you?

No – we werent hacked. The bad people got their hands on other peoples passwords by using an evil technique called phishing. That basically means they pretend to be Mojang and fool people into entering their private details onto fake websites.


What can I learn from this?

You should never, ever, enter your Mojang account details on websites that arent owned by us. Its good practice to use different passwords for each of your internet logins too. That way, if someone does get hold of one password, they wont get access to your other stuff.


Id still like to reset my Mojang password. Just to be safe

Fair enough. You sound like a sensible one. Heres a link: minecraft.net/resetpassword. If you have any other support issues, help.mojang.com is your friend.


Thanks for reading.
