Reports were published within the past week that more than 1,800 Minecraft accounts were hacked, with passwords leaked online - but the company has defended itself, and it looks like phishing attacks are to blame.
"No! We haven't been hacked," said Owen Hill, Chief World Officer at Mojang, in a published blog post. " No one has gained access to the Mojang mainframe. Even if they did, we store your passwords in a super encrypted format. Honestly, you don't need to panic."
Affected Minecraft players have been emailed and will now need to reset their passwords. If you want to change your password just in case, head to Minecraft.net/resetpassword.
