Mozilla and Have I Been Pwned will soon alert Fire­fox users if a site has been hacked. These new ‘Breach Alerts’ will pop up and di­rect users to a sup­port page to get more in­for­ma­tion and see if their cre­den­tials have been com­pro­mised. Fire­fox users can also opt in to re­ceive no­ti­fi­ca­tions of other data breaches. Pow­er­ing this add-on is the site Have I Been Pwned, which was founded by Aus­tralian cy­ber­se­cu­rity ex­pert Troy Hunt. There’s no word on when it’ll go live, but the beta can be down­loaded from Github.
