Account Hack


Recommended Posts

So I recently put up my new Tekkit Lite server which has done great. But the other day I noticed that spawn was griefed and It was under my name for Core Protection at about 3am. So I go and change my password on my minecraft account to a complex series of numbers and letters and no one had changed my old password. The next day I get on again to find the same thing happened to the spawn and some peoples houses all under my name! I changed my password once again. Is there someone brute forcing my account? Will this quit or is it a security bug with the server? Please help

It's more likely that someone is changing their name to yours than them actually using our account, unless they have some way to access it without putting in a password (someone else using your computer?) check the logs for when your account logged in - in particular around the time it happened. If your server is in offline mode, anyone could log in as any name they like, by the way.
