    ALRIGHT EVERYONE BUCKLE UP, GOOD OL' IRISH IS GONNA CLEAR UP THIS "HACKED SKINS" DRAMA:

    You will not get hacked by using a skin you have created.

    Its is pretty much impossible that you will get hacked by a skin by your friend.

    And if you even were hacked, you would not lose your PC to "hackers".

    Here is the official statement from Mojang.

    But Irish! The Sun/Avast/Reddit said it's real! No, no, no. Every single one of those sources is basing their info on a single post from Avast. The post (From Avast) in question had very little research, and it quoted none of their sources. What does that tell you? That this is a big, overly dramatised mess.

    The "hack" in question is a snippet of code that has been embedded into a .png. It is not some Trojan Horse or Kill Switch, and to make things even funnier: Minecraft can't even run the code. That's right, to run the hack, you would need to download another piece of software. So even if for some strange reason you do get a hacked skin (Unlikely), then you won't even get hacked.

    Anyway, this mess is over. Mojang has patched their system, so your skins and meme folders are safe. You can all stop fear mongering now.
