Under Armour Says 150 Million MyFitnessPal Accounts Were Hacked

Nick Turner, writing for Bloomberg:

Under Armour Inc., joining a growing list of corporate victims of hacker attacks, said about 150 million user accounts tied to its MyFitnessPal nutrition-tracking app were breached earlier this year.

An unauthorized party stole data from the accounts in late February, Under Armour said on Thursday. It became aware of the breach earlier this week and took steps to alert users about the incident, the company said.

It’s a little scary that this went undetected for a month. Makes me wonder how many of these data breaches are never noticed.
