Mozilla passwords compromised, all told to remain calmMan the battle stations and change your passwords! A database holding 44,000 usernames and password hashes that are associated with accounts registered on the Mozilla add-ons website made public by accident, according to Mozilla. This partial database was exposed on a Mozilla public server by accident, and this would have enabled anyone to access the account usernames and the password hashes. According to Mozilla though, nobody did just that, save for the sole security researcher who found them. Do you believe that that is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth? We’re pretty sure that most of you out there would be skeptical of such a claim, so in this case it is always better to err on the side of caution.
