Daily Craft – Minecraft News: Passwords Phished, Ender Dragon boosted
1,800 Minecraft Passwords phished
If your Minecraft account appears to have been hacked, it looks like you’re the victim of a phising scandal. German publication Heise reported recently that 1,800 passwords were compromised in a hacking attack, but Mojang have explained that there has been no attack on the Minecraft servers, and that the stolen passwords were probably picked up in phising scams.
“No-one has gained access to the Mojang mainframe,” Owen Hill said on the Mojang website. “Even if they did, we store your passwords in a super encrypted format. Honestly, you don’t need to panic.”
Phising is where someone pretends to be Mojang and asks for your username and password. If this has happened to you, you could well have given your password away to some one you didn’t mean to. Remember to be careful: Mojang will never ask you for your details.
Ender Dragon getting a boost in patch 1.9
The PC version of Minecraft is normally considered the best thanks to it’s cool extra features, but on consoles the Ender Dragon boss fight is much cooler, with interesting changes that make it a more challenging battle. That’s going to change in the 1.9 patch for PC though.
Mojang developer Nathan Adams confirmed that the Ender Dragon is getting remade on PC, and will not only be as good as the console version, but also feature some new, secret things.
If you’ve already faced the dragon in your world, you’ll be able to fight the new version of the dragon without resetting your world.
