An estimated 150 million users of Under Armour’s popular food and nutrition logging app, MyFitnessPal, have had their account information compromised. Under Armour announced the massive data breach in a statement on Thursday, March 29th, 2018, after discovering an unauthorized party had accessed user data on March 25th. With 150 million records compromised, this would place this breach among the largest cyberattacks of all time.
The breach included usernames, email addresses, and hashed passwords – the types of information that cybercriminals sell on the dark web or use to commit identity theft. Luckily, payment-card data, which is processed separately, was not included in the breach.
Under Armour is notifying its MyFitnessPal users and said their investigation is ongoing. The company’s announcement saw immediate reaction in the marketplace, as its stock price fell 3.8 percent in aftermarket trade.
