Hey! Long time no chat! I have been out of commission for a while in terms of how much I could be online and what I could do with that time. I foresee some opportunities to reconnect for a little bit, but I find that matrix.org has been replaced with an ominous message...

Ominous message on matrix.org:

 Time for actual transparency.

See you soon.

Edit: Just in case I didn't imply it enough, I fear that the server has been breached, and that the cracker has demonstrated that they have access to password hashes and a user list. Does anyone know what is referenced next to the user address?

Edit 2: Ok, found their security notice before it went down, and I guess the breach wasn't as addressed as they thought. :(

Since matrix.org was a server in use by this community, I would highly suggest that everyone that used it here change their passes when the server gets back online, and if that pass is used anywhere else, you should change where ever it is used.

Really sad to see one of the main matrix servers go down like this, but happy that it wasn't an issue with the matrix code itself.

Here are some alternative matrix servers.

Edit3: Through unsettling ups and downs, matrix.org seems to be back online as of this edit.
