Mozilla’s Bugzilla Compromised, Sensitive Data StolenDoes not appear to be as bad as one might think.

Bugzilla, a bug tracker that is used by Mozilla, Webkit, FreeBSD, the Linux kernel, Apache and many other vendors, has been recently compromised.

As detailed in the blog post, the attacker broke into one of the accounts and gained access to the security sensitive data. Mozilla also believes that the newly acquired information then was used to attack Firefox users. On a positive note, it looks like the vulnerability that he or she reportedly exploited has already been patched at the end of August.

Nonetheless, Mozilla is pretty serious about the “hack” and now require all users with access to sensitive data to use the two factor authentication and change their passwords.
