Mozilla Says Hacker Stole Security-sensitive Info After Compromising Its Bug-tracking System

In a dedicated blog post, Mozilla has disclosed that its bug-tracking system was compromised and the hacker managed to hold away security-sensitive information, which the company believes was used to attack users of its Firefox web browser.

Mozilla assumed they believe the attacker used the stolen information to exploit the vulnerability that was patched on August 6, adding that Firefox version released on August 27 contains patches to all the vulnerabilities that that attacker could have learned about.

The company also shared that they're making improvements to their bug-tracking system to create sure that this doesn't happen again. "As an immediate first step, all users with access to security-sensitive information have been required to change their passwords and utilize two-factor authentication," Mozilla said. "We are reducing the number of users with privileged access and limiting what each privileged user can do."
