Data about 150 million users of the application for fitness and control of calories MyFitnessPal were abducted by unknown hackers. The leak almost immediately confirmed the manufacturer of equipment Under Armor, owning the service.
Hacking occurred in late February, but it was noticed only now: hackers stole passwords, email addresses and account names. The company was assured that they closed the hole in security and did not allow attackers to get to credit cards, insurance numbers and driver’s licenses of customers.
Under Armor sent out notifications to users about the need to change the password. The company did not explain the reason for the leak. As Bloomberg noted, the equipment manufacturer’s shares fell 4.6% after reports of hacking.
