Your answer is definitely right but I was asking about Json file vs Private Key, which one is better or secure. Thanks for your respon anyway.

if in my opinion better use json file, because if json file stolen inside there is still password than private key if lost direct stolen

This is not the best way but i guess this can become an alternative way for you to open your wallet and send your amount to anywhere.

The result will be the same if you are putting your JSON password or ethereum private key because you have written on the wrong or phishing site.

Just try to do that through use ether DEX and it may better rather than opening your wallet directly to the MEW. But i suggest you to keep calm until the MEW developer will give an announcement regarding it.

Yesterday, there was a post warning people about accessing myetherwallet. Here is the link: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3386300.0

If I were you, restrain from opening myetherwallet. We don't know how true these news are but it is better to prevent loss from happening. MEW is not completely secured and expert hackers can still hijack it. If you really want a good wallet, you can go for hardware wallets such as Ledger and Trezor, although it might cost you some money too.
