Firefox adds in-browser notification of breached sites

Mozilla has added a data breach notification to Firefox that warns the browser’s users when their email address and credentials may have been obtained by hackers.

Dubbed Firefox Monitor, the free breach notification service debuted in September after some testing during the summer. Anyone — not only Firefox users — can steer to the service website, enter an email address and be told if that address was among those involved in successful, publicly-known breach attacks. Next steps were up to the user, including the obvious of changing the password(s) connected to that email address and/or website(s).

Notifications of the latest breaches were sent by Firefox Monitor to the user-submitted address. “Your email address will be scanned against those data breaches, and we’ll let you know through a private email if you were involved,” wrote Nick Nguyen, Mozilla’s vice president of product strategy, in a Sept. 25 post to a company blog.

Amid calls for a Windows bug status dashboard, Microsoft belatedly agrees to build one

Credit to Author: Gregg Keizer| Date: Fri, 16 Nov 2018 02:59:00 -0800

A Windows expert this week urged Microsoft to put its money where its mouth is and produce a status dashboard or website that reports and tracks problems with the operating system.

Coincidentally or not, on Wednesday Microsoft said it would launch a “Windows update status dashboard,” but did not name a timetable except for a broad “in the coming year.”

“I can go to this page and see if something happening with Office 365 is just a me thing or if everyone else is seeing the same,” said Susan Bradley in a Nov. 13 email reply to questions, referring to the Office 365 Admin Center. (Note: Only those with administrative credentials have access; it’s not meant to provide information to end users.) “(But) if I want to find out if something is a known issue with Windows 10, I have to dig through – and monitor for changes – these pages,” she continued, listing two separate support documents for one such known issue.
