    Hello,

    There has recently been an increase in 'hacked accounts' on the server recently due to player's encouraging others to join their personal server for euros / admin or items within game.

    This player has been spreading an IP Address in which players join the server using the same password they use for their GuildCraft Account. This leads to the owner obtaining the password of that player - giving them full permissions on our server.

    The owner then continues to change the password and stealing all of their resources, money and essentially spreading the IP across the Network further and the process continues and repeats.

    This also happens on websites where they are offering 'freebies' by entering your account credentials. These happen a lot in data-breaches where people can easily lose access to their accounts and their information can be transferred without their knowledge.
    You can check if your email or any sites you may use have been breached through this website here: https://haveibeenpwned.com/


    This should encourage you to change your passwords so the same password isn't used constantly on different websites. Use different passwords for each site to maintain security - this principle also applies to Cracked Servers.



    This is happening at an alarming rate, so please be mindful if this occurs in our server and externally.

    • NEVER join a server using the same account details for GuildCraft.
    • Do not trust what people say - people will make up stories and lies to obtain your details. Nothing in life is free.
    • This is also applicable for external websites where they are offering 'freebies' for you to enter in your credentials.
    • Invest in a 2FA if applicable for extra security (2 Factor Authentication)
    • If you believe you've been hacked on OUR SERVER, report this to a staff member on Forums or Discord ASAP.

    Here are some useful web pages regarding compromised accounts with more information and tips to help you secure your account;
