Well, by that they mean there's an exploit bug in producing pistons, I believe. Since we have give enabled, I'm so sure it's a huge deal for us. However, people are saying placing pistons causes a slew of errors.
There is news of 1.7.3 for Thursday, so let's wait and see. Otherwise, if people are itching, I suppose I could get a blocklist and block pistons.
have you guys been able to play? keeps telling me java timed out when i try to connect
Try now. I restarted the server, and it was consuming an ungodly amount of RAM, almost 5gigs, for some reason.
I'm going to use a piston-blocking plugin, and update the server, and see how that goes, until tomorrow when the fix is supposed to drop. You can still craft them for some reason, but you can't place them. Need to update the give file too sometime.
