SERVER OFF: Mojang Auth BROKEN

Postby Inscrutable » Sun Jul 15, 2012 8:08 pm

The Yggdrasyl Server is presently OFF.

This is because Mojang's session authentication servers are down whilst they try to fix
the MASSIVE SECURITY HOLE they have. Apparently anyone with a migrated Mojang account
can have their account Hijacked... by ANYONE AT ALL.

The only player I know who has a Mojang login is Dstrat33, but if there are any others, speak up.

Hopefully they will get this fixed someday soon. I don't want to have to run the server in Offline mode,
and add X-Auth and all the rigamarole that it involves. But It won't be up again until it's secure.

Griefers Destroyed ecoCityCraft today. I am not a happy camper. KILL THOSE NODUS FREAKS!

Here's the announcement from Mojang:

Right now the authorization servers have been taken offline and will be down until further notice. The Mojangstas are working hard to make sure we get everything back to perfect working order.
We’ll keep you updated as we have a more clear timeline. We really are sorry about this and are working as fast as we can!
Happy Sunday :) - Lydia Winters, Mojang

The Yggdrasyl Server is Back Up Again. Mojang's Server Auth issue was fixed in double-quick time.

Leonard Axelsson: The session servers are back up again and it's no longer possible to login as someone else.
