I made our little Minecraft server a whitelisted…

I made our little Minecraft server a whitelisted one this morning after I read about this hacking on another server. 3 guys were able to login and change all the signs in the world.

That unfortunately is a bug of vulnerability in Minecraft but if they can’t get in they can’t do it. I’ve added everyone who has been on before (or who I know is interested), so if you want to join us, get in touch with your Minecraft username.

  1. Whitelisting will also prevent people from trolling your server (lighting all your wood houses on fire for example), so it’s a good idea in general.

    1. Yeah, that freaked me out when I first set up a server. I found a guestbook plugin that stopped people modifying the world at all if they weren’t signed in. Whitelisting gives me more confidence however if they can’t even connect!

  2. That’s a pretty scary hacking incident. And whitelisted is really the only way to go if you want to get any building done. After playing on a few public servers, my own server has been whitelisted since day 1.
