The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
The government made this exploit originally that can see everyone's passwords, also the same exploit that allowed them to see through the tor network, no one has fixed this and it's been out there for 18 months
This doesn't make any sense at all. If Mojang was not hacked, and the problem has been fixed then why in the world would we need to change our passwords?
Either you were hacked and we should change them, or everything is A ok and we don't need too. Personally, it would seem to me that there are some clear discrepancies in your story.
Up above you say, "As a precaution, it has been recommended that you update your Minecraft password, just to be sure." However, you end the very same post by saying, "Regardless of whether you have or have not migrated, it is crucial to change your password."
If it is only recommended that we change our passwords then why is it so crucial?
I would like to know what actually happened and why you are pushing us so hard to change our passwords? Personally, I think your OpenSSL was hacked and you just don't want to say it for fear you may lose some customers.
If you were already hacked, then if you change your password NOW you don't need to worry about others changing it for you. Though I have no reason why to believe a hacker like that would want to play Minecraft on your account, this affects most of the Internet, so that's pretty crucial. And if you really want to know, some guy made Heartbleed, about more than 2/3 of the Internet was able to get hacked (for lack of better term). It's not much more than that, but if you're gonna go daredevil and not change your password we're not gonna really care if for some reason some hacker wants your account.
Guys I think I know some hackers but I'm not sure in YouTube every famous you tuber account has a spammer that keeps on saying search out mine craft virtpal they changed it now and now its called duxom I think that's what causing the problems in minecraft the accounts in YouTube is either fake accounts or paid accounts and they speak like British just saying what I know
At first, i was pretty laid back, thinking 'Never mind, it won't happen to me or anyone i know.' Then...my friend's account got hacked. Instantly, I changed my password three times over.
Job well done.
