A serious security flaw has been discovered that requires the immediate update of our servers. This is an operating system flaw; not a Minecraft bug. Minecraft servers and clients are still safe; though that should not be an indication that they are void of any "undocumented features."

The flaw was discovered during the course of investigating suspicious network behavior. Fortunately, our IDS was ever-vigilant and prevented system access by the malicious user(s)/bot. It will take me about 60 minutes to update all servers and verify that the security patch is working as intended. It could be sooner.

I just checked the map and it shows people are still on and the clock is still running. I'm not sure if this is a glitch or if some one has hacked all the accounts. Here's the screenshot of my desktop.

It's a glitch Phil, because it shows both you and me on the map.  I know that I'm not connected, and based on your post, I'm guessing that neither are you.

And the servers are back up again. Had to spent a couple of minutes to do some clean up and verify configuration management. As stated earlier, nothing was compromised.
