Under Armour is dealing with a new data breach that may have seen information from as many as 150 million people compromised.
The company said it learned late last month that “an unauthorized party” gained access and acquired unspecified data maintained within its MyFitnessPal app, which is branded as a calorie tracker as well as a free diet and exercise journal.
Under Armour has already launched an investigation into the breach and said it began notifying users four days after discovering the issue through e-mail and in-app messaging. The notice included “account security steps” and the company said it will now be requiring users to immediately change their account passwords.
“Under Armour is working with leading data security firms to assist in its investigation, and also coordinating with law enforcement authorities,” the company said in a statement.
An Under Armour representative could not be immediately reached for further comment.
User data thought to be accessed includes user names, e-mail addresses and encrypted passwords.
The company has lately been dealing with a decline in sales and has been undergoing an internal restructuring that’s seen a number of executive changes and a consolidation of its supply chain.
