Data breach warning
It was brought to our attention that a recent data breach included MD data, including emails and password hashes. Our advice is that you use unique passwords, and in case you used your MD account password elsewhere please change that asap just to be sure. We store account passwords hashed (one way encrypted, without the possibility to be decrypted), specially for this kind of rare situations, so unless you used a dictionary word as your password, your account should be safe.
A very important advice, as a general rule of internet use, be sure you never use your email password for any other account other than your email, and never try to remember passwords, instead use a password manager and use randomized passwords.
