I don't know about you, but I hate cracked Minecraft accounts. I actually think they should be illegal to have. Its like stealing. Getting something free, that was supposed to be paid. I see so many cracked SMP server, it makes me mad. I wish the cracked account users just quit or buy a real account. I don't care if cracked or free accounts only play SP, thats half of the game. So people can join me and stop this cracked account madness.

Yeah, it actually is illegal. It's pirating software, which is against many many laws.

Make the code stronger to stop it I mean really. I disagree about not having cracked because at skool we can only play cracked.

Pirating (Copyright infringement of software) is illegal in all 50 states of the USA and most countries of the world.

I say most countries because of small weird countries that forgot to make laws about it.

You can't "make the code" stronger. That's not how code works.

Minecraft is written in Java, which means it is quite easy to decompile the whole thing and look at the source code. If you know even the smallest thing about Java it's easy to take out the code that requires validation and presto, you've got a cracked game.

You can't make Java "undecompileable", the best you can do is obfuscate it (which they do) which isn't a perfect protection. In reality there isn't much they can do about it, and making the code 100% secure would instantly make all current mods useless anyway because mods rely on basically cracking the game anyway.

What if Minecraft makes the servers have better protection. Couldnt someone use a hacked client then upload a virus to there servers, Thats the way any one can get minecraft free because they dont have a way to authenicate what is flowing throught there servers
