The browser has been disabled the accounts of the individuals in question and reset all of their passwords for security reasons.
One of the registered users of Mozilla said that he received an email from Chris Lyon who is the director of infrastructure security at the browser company.
In the letter it appeared as though that the information from the user was only downloaded by Mozilla staff members. Those who work on the security team have taken all appropriate measures to make sure that it does not happen again.
