Hi James, would it make sense to include information about the availability of 2FA in this email too?

Hi all,

I apologize for the short notice but if anyone has a couple minutes to help translate a security message it would be great. We've been having some security  issues over the past couple days with compromised accounts and we want to make sure we get the message out to admins as much as possible.

You can find the message for translation on meta at: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Security/Password_reset

I've also copied the text below for your benefit and if easier feel free to reply to me and I can enter it in as well.

We are currently experiencing compromises of privileged wiki accounts by an unknown and unauthorized third party. It appears that this may be the result of weak or reused passwords.

Community members are working along with members of multiple teams at the Foundation to address this issue.

In the meantime, we are asking that everyone review the passwords that they have chosen for their wiki accounts. If you know that you've chosen a weak password, or if you've chosen a password that you are also using or a non-wiki account, please change those passwords.

Select strong passwords -- eight or more characters long, and containing letters, numbers, and punctuation.
