My server is hacked. Someone became admin and doing unwanted things. I didnt even gave ip to anyone.HELP

  • disable cracked and use a whitelist

    Yes I did it. I can't understand the guy is joining even when i ban. When I used whitelist, He came again. I don't know why. He blew up every build in my server where i tried to make and show to my friends after completing. 80% Done but a random hacker did this. And about online mode, my orginal java account was hacked a week ago and someone mailed me "It is Aternos staff and we joined russian hacker to hack you"
    After getting hacked, I tried to recover my account but not possible. So Im doing my builds with an offline account. Can't buy again. My microsoft account deleted. Help me. No plugins working. I wish you could improve security with new ideas. Mainly , He is becoming admin in server and my permission are not visible. How could this happen ? My aternos password will be changed twice a week, I will do it for security. Even thourgh HOW??

    This is so series thing now going on aternos server. I am lucky because my friends aternos server and thier computers, both were hacked. And they said the same. "We're aternos staff but joined russian hackers"

    Please help,
    Amazing.

  • Then you should contact the Microsoft support, not us.

    This has nothing to do with us.

    I know it!!
    I did it 2 months ago. Not about my account. MY SERVER!
    My aternos server is hacked! Account hacked!!
    I just said that my minecraft account hacked, maybe the same hacker hacked my server and aternos server also. So have you red my previoues message correctly!?

    I did read your previous messages. If the hacker was able to gain access to your Microsoft account then that's probably because you used a bad password or you shared that password with someone else. In that case you likely used the same password or a different bad password on your Aternos account.

    To protect yourself from this you need to use a good password and keep that password secret. Enabling 2FA is also a good step to make your account even more secure.


    The other option how they could "hack" your server is that you had the cracked option enabled. If that option is enabled then the Minecraft server skips any user authentication. This means that anyone can join your server with your username and they will have the same inventory and permissions as you do.

    This won't give them access to your Aternos or Microsoft account but it allows them to op other accounts and run all commands.

    i suspect if any hacker hacked aternos or maybe hacked by the staff itself.

    That's ridiculous and doesn't make any sense. If someone had "hacked Aternos" why would they only use that to troll a single person? And why would someone from our team do this?

    Also neither of these explain how your Microsoft account got hacked.


    and even he became admin and cosole some have types to become admin. I SAW. !!!!

    Did you actually see him entering commands directly into the console or did you only see that he running commands from Minecraft there?

    No, it happend to most of my friends. they are silent and now i came here to say everything.
    all most like 80-100 people hacked. Ie, my real and online (discord, insta .etc) friends.
    From outside also i saw many people got hacked recently 1 or 2months ago.
    not a single person got "trolled"


    No. i dint see entering commands. but it was visible.
    ex: Made AdaRusianBoi as a admin."
    AdaRusianBoi and someother named guy was destroying my server.

    I have proof videos of he getting admin without my control and my admin permins gone.
    I prefer any way to send you proof videos. really. Please.

  • banning a player's ip wont work, either u have to ban yourself, create a backup or add authme or login scurity. u could also add nocheatplus to prevent hacks from your server. then u have to again unban yourself from server console.
