the common matrix servers have been compromised in the past, I believe through social engineering. Fortunately, you can set up your own, however maintaining the security is a hugely complicated enterprise for most people, and would totally negate the ease of use factor for those folks unless perhaps someone in their community is willing to do that labor unremunerated.
