Under Armour says data breach affected about 150 million MyFitnessPal accounts

Shares of Under Armour dropped 3.8 percent, before paring losses, after the active-wear company informed users of its online fitness and nutrition website their data had been compromised.

Under Armour announced on Thursday that the breach affected an estimated 150 million users of its food and nutrition application, MyFitnessPal.

The investigation indicates that affected information may include usernames, email addresses, and hashed passwords.

Payment information, which Under Armour collects and processes separately, has not been affected by the breach. Under Armour does not collect government identifiers, like social security numbers and driver's license numbers.
