I was playing on a private server (Classic/Creative) with a friend, until the other player claimed there was someone walking around with a default skin. This was odd - according to the server logs, there has never been a third player. However, there was this:

According to some searches this happens when it can't connect to the Minecraft website, but could this have caused a 'ghost' player that walked around for a bit? It's kind of creeping me out.
Can you guess where the avatar's from?

Herobrine is real!!!!

I don't believe you because of the herobrine hoax, but its entirely possible, the Halo games have always had ghost players and AI in custom games and forge mode.

So you say 1.4 is fail because you don't know how to update your server? WTF

Thats like saying all cars fail because you don't know how to put gas in them.

According to the other player, the skin was the default one. I thought Herobrine had a different skin. Or something.

another sign of Herobrine

Default skin, empty or real human eyes.

My main question is whether this is possible or not, be it a client or server bug. I was hoping it could be rationalized without bringing up Herobrine.

The server I currently play on might be experiencing something similar to this, except they are mass-griefing. It sounds like a very troll-able client hack.

Is there a nametag on the play and if there is you should try to ban him/her/it.
