“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.

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