7M Accounts For Minecraft Community ‘Lifeboat’ Compromised

If you are a member of the Minecraft community "Lifeboat," I have bad news for you. According to the article, Lifeboat has yet to acknowledge the breach or warn it its users that their information has been compromised. frown

Over seven million user accounts belonging to members of Minecraft community "Lifeboat" have been hacked, according to security researcher Troy Hunt. Hunt said he will upload the data to his breach notification website "Have I Been Pwned?", which allows people to check if their account is compromised, on Tuesday, and that it includes email addresses and weakly hashed passwordsآ—meaning that hackers could likely obtain full passwords from some of the data.
