Minecraft Servers Hacked Over the Weekend; No Information TakenCategory: Gaming

It nearly seemed like the weekly occurence of a game website or service being hacked had disappeared, but that was not the case. Over the weekend, some people decided to hack the Minecraft servers and block people from enjoying Mojang's insanely popular world-building game. The hackers were able to login as any person, including Notch, which prompted Mojang to take down the servers. The developers then went to work on fixing the exploit and were able to bring the servers back up before long. The best news from all of this, is that no information was taken during the hack. The hackers did not take any passwords or personal information, according to Mojang, so everything is once again running smooth as silk. Hopefully this will be the last time hackers decide to mess with anything, but I imagine that is a small hope, sadly.
