Rebuild status: pretty much all the key systems for matrix.org are back online. All integs now work again, almost all bridges are back; all new gitlab.matrix.org; 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 #decentralised, self-hosted communications! New Pattle release (Android/iOS app on Flutter), new #Qt5 library release Dimension integration manager and more! Plus - the blog itself is new!

### We have discovered and addressed a security breach - Matrix
If you have ever had an account on the `matrix.org` server, please reset the password and also any other sites passwords if you used the same password elsewhere.
More details by the team to follow.
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.
crosspost from @matrix since their instance is currently down:
We’ve taken down the servers which host (link: http://Matrix.org) Matrix.org and (link: http://Riot.im) Riot.im for emergency security maintenance - estimated downtime is several hours. More updates as we have them.
the security maintenance is to address issues with (link: http://Matrix.org) Matrix.org's production infrastructure. This is not a Synapse issue.
