Minecraft leak wasn't company's fault, Microsoft says

CNET writes: The leak of more than 1,800 e-mails and passwords of Minecraft users wasn't the result of a hack, Microsoft said Wednesday.

Microsoft, which now owns the Minecraft franchise after acquiring game developer Mojang in November, told CNET on Wednesday that there is no evidence the service was compromised and noted that it has already reset passwords for the affected addresses.

The story is too old to be commented.

Well at least they found out quickly.

Fuzz over nothing I suppose. Minecraft has sold some what, 50+ million copies? If there was mere thousands leaked it most likely was a result of phishing over some time.

And people like to blame companies from everything. I work at a bank and occasionally hear about people complaining about their money being stolen. Not once has it been the banks fault, they have themselves actually given the credit card info to a fraud site. 99% of the time it's phishing, the remaining 1% is spyware. Which amazes me how on earth are people getting spyware on their PCs when these days you have to pass multiple warning signs before anything serious can happen.

People are stupid

"complaining about their money being stolen"

Their money is getting stolen if they're victims of Fraudulent charges. Unless you meant that they accuse the bank of stealing their money.

Uhh, I meant that people often blame the person answering the phone and the bank in general instead of admitting it's their own fault. Of course people are going to call the bank after that happens but a lot of customers are just plain rude. Should have been more clear. Oh well, better just suck up those disagrees. I deserved them :(
