This doesn't make any sense at all. If Mojang was not hacked, and the problem has been fixed then why in the world would we need to change our passwords?
Either you were hacked and we should change them, or everything is A ok and we don't need too. Personally, it would seem to me that there are some clear discrepancies in your story.
Up above you say, "As a precaution, it has been recommended that you update your Minecraft password, just to be sure." However, you end the very same post by saying, "Regardless of whether you have or have not migrated, it is crucial to change your password."
If it is only recommended that we change our passwords then why is it so crucial?
I would like to know what actually happened and why you are pushing us so hard to change our passwords? Personally, I think your OpenSSL was hacked and you just don't want to say it for fear you may lose some customers.
Cuz I think the passwords are stored in Amazon, not in Mojang.
At first, i was pretty laid back, thinking 'Never mind, it won't happen to me or anyone i know.' Then...my friend's account got hacked. Instantly, I changed my password three times over.
Job well done.
