Minecraft Players' Details Leaked Online

While it is not a surprise that Microsoft’s Xbox Live service is being targeted by the hackers, now another of the company’s gaming brands is targeted by cyber attackers: Minecraft. Media reports reveal that email addresses and passwords of over 1,800 Minecraft accounts leaked online in the unencrypted format. However, it was not revealed how the hackers managed to steal that data.

Apparently, the email addresses and passwords would allow anyone to log in to each of those accounts on Minecraft and play the game online, as well as download Minecraft to their own machines to play offline. Nevertheless, the players who use the same email address and password combination for other online services may have more serious problems, especially if they used them for shopping, banking, email and social networking.

In the meantime, it was claimed that only 1,800 accounts were hacked, which is a small fraction of the overall Minecraft population. In it known that the game has over 100 million registered accounts for its version for personal computers only. In other words, 1,800 accounts is just a very minor breach. However, it may turn out to be just the tip of an iceberg, where player data was compromised, and become a very serious problem for Minecraft’s developer Mojang, as well as its parent company, Microsoft.

According to security experts, nobody can guarantee that the hacker who gained access to those 1,800 accounts haven’t got a whole lot more in their back pocket. The cyber attackers may have chosen to publish only a tiny part online and use all other details for their own purpose.

Although there were no reports about the security breach on Minecraft’s homepage, the players who have any concern that their accounts might be exposed to hackers are recommended to not waste their time and change their passwords immediately. Of course, the players who use the same password everywhere else on the Internet should be particularly concerned about their security.

In the meantime, the game developer has already published recommendations for players on how to choose a strong password for Minecraft. So, even if you are not a gamer, you may wish to visit the developer’s page and read that post to create new strong passwords for your online accounts.
