The email addresses and encrypted passwords of about 97,000 users of the test build of bug tracking system Bugzilla – specifically landfill.bugzilla.org – were posted publicly online for roughly three months beginning around May 4, according to a Wednesday post.

The incident transpired during a migration of the testing server for test builds of Bugzilla software, the post indicates, explaining that the information was taken offline immediately upon discovery and the testing process has been changed to no longer require database dumps.

Bugzilla is a community project supported by Mozilla, but the incident does not affect users of bugzilla.mozilla.org, unless the same password was reused, according to the post.

Following a Mozilla Developer Network breach earlier this month, Mozilla announced on Wednesday that it had launched an effort to promote better practices involving user data, which includes supported projects such as Bugzilla.
