    Due to an exploit in the OpenSSL software used by Amazon's load balancing service (which Mojang use for most of their stuff) they were forced to temporary suspend all of MC services. All systems are now back online, and the exploit has been fixed. Therefore Mojang recommend everyone to change their Mojang/Minecraft account passwords

    More information about this issue and links to change your password can be found here:

    I was actually curious about changing or not, because my password was quite secure but in the end i just felt that it would be safe to change it so i have.

    you can use any computer with internet access, just go to the link I provide in the beginning and follow the instructions, next time you launch mine craft in your pc it will ask you to re-enter your email/password
