Dear members of Chunkbyte This is a official message from the staff team There has been created a new bug/hack called Heartbleed that is hacking the Open SSL that mojang was running theyr login authentication on so therefore mojang has changed.
Just a quick note. Server has gone down at the exact same time (give or take 5 min), this evening as last night. Aprox 10 min prior to this timestamp. Unsure of cause, but time is consistent for last 2 nights.
Mojang released a news today titled 'Heartbleed' explaining that players minecraft accounts may not be safe any more!
There was a serious vulnerability in their OpenSSL as it was made public. This vulnerability could have potentially made a exploit for hackers to gain access to your information, such as login information.
This also explains the Mojang login server downtime recently due to the fact that as soon as Mojang realised this problem they shut down their systems in an attempt to stop hackers from gaining access to the information.
At the moment there is no way to confirm that your information has been leaked, so the best cause of action is for you to change your minecraft login password so make sure your account is safe!
the latest news about the "Huge Rank Overhaul" was -of course- a prank due to the 1st of April.
I hope you guys had fun with this announcement ;-)
No joke is, that we expanded the features of the EcoLeader-Rank and gave back a replacement of the old quantum generator: The creative energy cell.
This item is for free and will be given after rankup as EcoLeader by creating a PE. Needless to say that, this energy and the block itself is limited to the ranked-up member. (Rule was added)
Another great news, we have for you is, that the recent server-crashes are fixed.
It was caused by a non-fixed issue with the harvester while destroying jungle log somewhere in the overworld. We did a rollback on all harvesters and banned the item temporary until the next version of FTB is released.
You can use multifarms and even golems as a workaround.
We know, that stuff got lost in the last days, and sometimes I reacted a bit harsh on tells like ("source?"), but at this moment everything is running fine and lost machines got refunded very quick.
At this point I want to remind everyone, who wants to receive support from the server's staff, that we're not doing this for money. We're supporting you because we have fun doing so.
For me (sourcemaker) ChunkByte became a full-time job (70 and more hours per week) beside my studies. Both are _really_ important for me.
Some members (especially new ones) don't know this and are very demanding, have unkindness of their behavior and start moaning in the chat. This is something I really hate - it is really unfair against our work we do and task we finished, many members don't even see.
We can't keep up supporting while everything the chat is a chaos. Please create petitions (= Support-Ticket) by doing /pe create <problem description> in front of the location where the problem occurs.
Trust me - we can help quicker and better.
My greeting today goes to our awesome members from Las Vegas, Kobenhavn, Provo, Darmstadt and Friedrichskoog.
5 members sent me postcards so far and gained access to the promised lands. Thank you, guys! :-)
