Under Armour announced that their subsidiary MyFitnessPal had a data breach and 150 million accounts were affect. Account information involved in the breach includes user names, email addresses, and hashed passwords, but no financial information like credit card numbers or identifiers like social security numbers.
Under Armour says it was made aware last week of the breach, but occurred some time in February. The company has been working to notify affected users and is expected to work with the police and data security firms to try and trace the source of the breach.
“Four days after learning of the issue, the company began notifying the MyFitnessPal community via email and through in-app messaging. The notice contains recommendations for MyFitnessPal users regarding account security steps they can take to help protect their information,” Under Armour said in a statement. “The company will be requiring MyFitnessPal users to change their passwords and is urging users to do so immediately.”
