Mozilla Security Breach Exposed Developer Email And Passwords

mozilla logo

A bad script in Mozilla accidentally exposed developers email and passwords. Email addresses for 76,000 members of its Developer Network, along with 4000 encrypted passwords.

Mozilla's developer and security heads Stormy Peters and Joe Stevenson said, "The offending data sanitization process failed, resulting in the breach. As soon as we learned of it, the database dump file was removed from the server immediately, and the process that generates the dump was disabled to prevent further disclosure. While we have not been able to detect malicious activity on that server, we cannot be sure there wasn't any such access. Mozilla would review unspecified security measures including "processes and principles" that may prevent a repeat breach."

Mozilla promises to users and developers that , such kind of breach will not happen again.
