Under Armour Inc. said late Thursday it has detected a data breach in MyFitnessPal user accounts. The breach did not include government-issued identifiers, such as Social Security numbers and driver’s license numbers, which the company does not collect from users, or credit-card data, which is processed separately, Under Armour said. About 150 million user accounts were affected, the company said. “The investigation indicates that the affected information included usernames, email addresses, and hashed passwords — the majority with the hashing function called bcrypt used to secure passwords,” the company said. Shares of Under Armour were flat in late trading after ending the regular session up 0.1%.
