It's btw great to be a part of a team that takes this kind of an attack and as a team uses it to only come back stronger <3

Relaying as is not yet rebuilt:


Rebuild status: pretty much all the key systems for are back online. All integs now work again, almost all bridges are back; all new; new blog. Thanks for your patience & understanding whilst we do the last bits (eg fedtester).

Security update: Sydent 1.0.2. If you run your own Sydent identity server and use the allowed_local_3pids setting in Synapse to restrict registration per email domain, you must upgrade. Thanks to @fs0c131y for finding the vuln.

This Week in Matrix is now available! All the latest in , self-hosted communications! New Pattle release (Android/iOS app on Flutter), new library release Dimension integration manager and more! Plus - the blog itself is new!

She did hit on my though. With her hand on my eye doing some 🤘banging. I guess that counts?

in was pretty cool yesterday. But what I really mostly remember is the woman in front of me, who had a nice scent. Everybody was packed up quite tightly in that club.

Of course I never went to talk to her after the gig finished. Not my style 🙄

BTW, I do wish people gave as much shit about the being destroyed than they do about the being destroyed.

Just saying.

Tomorrow is #fridaysforfuture and #schoolstrike4climate in hundreds of places all over the world. Everyone is welcome. Everyone is needed.

If you were impacted by the #matrix outage please consider standing up a Synapse instance and help decentralize. I've been running one for a couple of weeks and it is stable, low-maintenance software so far.

Update from birdsite:

In terms of the incident itself, we will publish an update shortly. Summary is: an attacker accessed the production infra that runs hence the rebuild. Source code & packages are unaffected. We do not think user data was targeted, but are playing it safe.

crosspost from @matrix since their instance is currently down:

We’ve taken down the servers which host (link: and (link: for emergency security maintenance - estimated downtime is several hours. More updates as we have them.

the security maintenance is to address issues with (link:'s production infrastructure. This is not a Synapse issue.
