There’s An App For That

Has your underwear been breached?

“Under Armour Inc. said on Thursday that data from some 150 million MyFitnessPal diet and fitness app accounts was compromised in February, in one of the biggest hacks in history, sending shares of the athletic apparel maker down 3 percent in after-hours trade.

“The stolen data includes account user names, email addresses and scrambled passwords for the popular MyFitnessPal mobile app and website, Under Armour said in a statement. Social Security numbers, driver license numbers and payment card data were not compromised, it said…

“While the breach did not include financial data, large troves of stolen email addresses can be valuable to cyber criminals.”

This is what we were talking about earlier this week: until there is some real penalty for companies being loose with your data, this will continue to happen.

    I figure in this day and age it must be the Russians. Google translate tells me that Under Armor in Russian is Pod Brony. Therefore I can safely conclude that their goal is to turn us all into bronies or pod people or most likely brony pod people. You have been warned.

    If someone offers to bet that they can guess the color of your underwear, don’t take it.

    Why the fuck would a fitness app need users’ social security numbers?
