Immediate Server Shutdown – 3PM EDT 7/11/15

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.
