Data breach affects 150 million MyFitnessPal accounts


Under Armour is reporting that a data breach has affected approximately 150 million MyFitnessPal accounts. The company became aware of the data breach on March 25, though the breach actually occurred in late February. Under Armour says that payment info was not affected, but usernames, email addresses, and hashed (scrambled) passwords were compromised. MyFitnessPal users have been notified and will be required to change their passwords.

Under Armour acquired MyFitnessPal in February 2015, and the calorie-tracking service brings in nearly two percent of Under Armour’s total revenue. This hack is a major blow, and is one of the largest data breaches in history, though fortunately, the severity of the information compromised is mild, considering that payment info was spared.
