    A new CraftBukkit build (#684) is now available that contains a fix for a CRITICAL crash exploit that allows people to easily freeze and crash your server and has been affecting quite a few servers recently.

    There should be no breaking changes in this build so anyone updating from #670-#677 should have no problems. However, you should always be backing your server up before updating to be safe.

    Other notable changes include:
    • A new pre-login event that properly exposes the IP and runs in its own thread.
    • Exception handling within the CraftScheduler
    UPGRADING IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

    Download CraftBukkit #684 here

    yikes, are these all new exploits being found, or was there trouble fixing the original completely?

    ...also it's all fine as long as these aren't breaking any plugins! Hard to argue with the simple download and placement of a file XD Thank you for your diligence in releasing patches!

    What about whitescreen/kick? Have you found the cause of the NaN?

    with the craftbukkit snapshot.jar change the whole name to just "craftbukkit.jar"
    then it should work..

    Since i am on a macbook the code i use to run a server is:
    java -Xms1028M -Xmx1028M -jar craftbukkit.jar nogui

    this basically says that you run your server with 1028Mb of RAM

    Sorry if this is a noob question, but how exactly does one go about updating your current build? Do you download the latest, then replace your craftbukket.jar file with the new one?

    yeh thats correct mate ... you just download the new one and change the name of it and then just drag it to the folder and replace the original one :)

    [EDIT] by the way... before you update... you HAVE to make sure your plugins work or are updated with the new build otherwise the server will be messed ;)

    Thank you, good sir. Guess I'll wait for the updates on my plugins, and install the 1.5 compatible build when its ready.

    What kind of results come from this new login thread and exception handling? Does that mean less lag, fewer crashes?

    Thanks for the security update.

    It might be a good idea to specify what version of Minecraft bukkit releases are intended for, especially when a bukkit release happens on the same day as a minecraft release.

    Also if you're reading this, bukkit version on the downloaded file name.

    I love it how I keep getting text msgs from my users with <server down> and I need to explain to them it doesn't get magically ready by the underpants gnomes... the ??? is a lot of hard work on part of developers to update their product :p Love you guys! Let me have some more downtime so that I can focus on my actual job.

    This! I keep wanting to play mine craft with these mods w/ all my friends, and I've been letting my actual job fall into decline LOL. At least I can say I've caught up everything tonight :3

    I can get a lil ahead of my work and spend the next week playing MC again lol.

    Bukkit Devs, Plugin Devs, thanks so much for the time and effort you put into this! It's made a lot of ppl happy :D

    Does anyone know the timezone they are in, it's a possibility that they are asleep.
    For now, I'm just playing single player with Zombe's Mods.

    I love it when the mod is down for a few days, it's actually quite relaxing. i just start a new singleplayer world and play the old fashioned way, i'm getting quite good, it's only been an hour and a half and i already have 4 diamonds :)
