IMPORTANT: We're seeing a large scale attempt to bulk-register bot accounts across the public Matrix network (including captcha bypass) in order to perform spam flood attacks. If you're running a public homeserver please disable open registration, or require email for signups.

The traffic caused by these distributed spam attacks is currently causing federation delays for servers which are participating in a targeted room; we are working on a performance fix for Synapse to address this.

@matrix Meanwhile server admins can use delete room API to remove users from Matrix HQ and remove it's data until things settle down. Documentation for the API is at github.com/matrix-org/synapse/ and Room ID for HQ is !OGEhHVWSdvArJzumhm:matrix.org
