Under Armour Says 150 Mln MyFitnessPal Accounts Hacked

Under Armour Says 150 Mln MyFitnessPal Accounts Hacked

At this point, the company believes 150 million user accounts were affected.

However, users' credit card details, social security numbers and drivers' licences have not been compromised.

Compromised personal information included usernames, email addresses and "hashed" passwords that were passed through a one-way encryption function.

This data breach is yet another excellent example of why it's so important to use unique passwords for every account login you have. Affected users are being notified via email and through in-app messaging, though the company is requiring all MyFitnessPal users to change their passwords immediately. However, its likely they may not be considered strong enough in ensuring tech businesses take full responsibility of their part in securing the private data of all their users.

It's reported that the breach happened sometime in February, and Under Armour has only recently (they were informed on March 25th) began taking steps to counter the impact the breach has had. Unfortunately, hackers have made off with the data of 150 million users. The usernames and email addresses exposed in the data breach were scrambled with an older hashing algorithm called SHA-1, making them easier to decipher.

"We take our obligation to safeguard your personal data very seriously and are alerting you about this issue so you can take steps to help protect your information". You should also avoid clicking on links or downloading attachments from suspicious emails.

The MyFitnessPal website and app lets people track their calorie intake, diet and exercise routines. Still, it is probably a best practice to change your password at any other site where you re-used the impacted password.

MyFitnessPal is a food and nutrition-based application and website that was initially acquired by Under Armour for $475 million back in 2015, according to The Verge.

The company said, "We continue to monitor for suspicious activity and to coordinate with law enforcement authorities".
