Today May 25, 2020 my wife rec'd email <breach-alerts[at]mozilla.com> from Firefox Monitor warning of a data breach at the Artsy web site. She doesn't use the Artsy web site and doesn't have Firefox installed on her laptop or phone. I Googled for "Firefox Artsy data breach" and did not find a report of a data breach at Artsy. We assume this is a phishing email, but I wanted to check with Mozilla to verify my conclusion. I do use Firefox on my laptop, and I haven't received a similar email. I could forward the email if that would be helpful. Thanks for your help. Ray Wynn [email address]

Mozilla uses https://haveibeenpwned.com to search for breaches and notify you of new ones. It may be possible an account was created using their email address.
