    Hello everyone!

    Today there were some issues on Skyblock, where a hacker logged in and took control of some players accounts. The situation has been handled accordingly, and players have been unbanned. If anyone is still banned for being compromised, please change your password and appeal on the forums!

    A few other quick announcements:

    Skyblock has been rolled back to 4 pm BST 7/30/2017.
    Reminder to NEVER click on or open suspicious links in chat. It just causes trouble!
    SrMods and higher will soon be granted more permissions to more quickly solve similar issues.

    A huge thank you to the other players, Helpers, and Mods who came on to help the situation through reporting it, controlling chat, and saving player's items.

    EDIT | IMPORTANT UPDATE

    Skyblock is back up and running, and a close eye will be kept on it.

    As one of those players who tried to calm down the community, I myself think that the staff managed with this quite efficiently, while the Helpers and players were making sure the chat was ok, if in the future this happens, I am pretty sure this time we will be quicker, considering we all now have more experience on how to handle the attack.

    It is good that the SrMods are being granted more permissions, soon, as it will help the server, as Taon said, loads if this happens again.

    I feel sorry for the players who had clean records, and then their record just came up with "compromised" but I am glad to hear that the accounts are now safe and secure, and we will hopefully not be having any problems related to this in the time coming.

    Yes, the hacker was sending links that lead the players to click and therefore their accounts being hacked, so, as Taon said, make sure to look at the link before clicking it, unless it is a Skycade related link, I recommend reporting it to a staff member.

    And this is why you don't have security questions on your mc account cause that's an exploit hackers use to do a brute force attack
