Mozilla: Hackers Stole Information From Bugzilla

Mozilla says that it is updating Bugzilla’s security practices after hackers stole security-sensitive information and used it against Firefox users.

The account that the attacker broke into was shut down shortly after Mozilla discovered that it had been compromised. We believe that the attacker used information from Bugzilla to exploit the vulnerability we patched on August 6. We have no indication that any other information obtained by the attacker has been used against Firefox users. The version of Firefox released on August 27 fixed all of the vulnerabilities that the attacker learned about and could have used to harm Firefox users.
