Bugzilla Breached, Private Vulnerability Data Stolen

darthcamaro writes: Mozilla today publicly announced that secured areas of bugzilla, where non-public zero days are stored, were accessed by an attacker. The attacker got access to as many as 185 security bugs before they were made public. They say, “We believe they used that information to attack Firefox users.” The whole hack raises the issue of Mozilla’s own security, since it was a user password that was stolen and the bugzilla accounts weren’t using two-factor authentication. According to Mozilla’s FAQ about the breach (PDF), “The earliest confirmed instance of unauthorized access dates to September 2014. There
are some indications that the attacker may have had access since September 2013.”
