Nearly 182 million records were exposed in the 10 biggest data breaches in the first half of 2018, with five of the six largest breaches occurring at private sector organizations.
1. Under Armour
Number Of Records Exposed: 150 Million
Under Armour said in March that data from some 150 million MyFitnessPal diet and fitness app accounts had been compromised in one of the biggest hacks in history.
The stolen data includes account user names, email addresses and scrambled passwords for the MyFitnessPal mobile app and website, according to the company. Social Security numbers, driver's license numbers and payment card data were not compromised, Under Armour said.
Under Armour did not provide details on how the hackers got into its network or pulled out the data without getting caught in the act. The company said that it would require MyFitnessPal users to change their passwords, urging users to do so immediately. Under Armour started notifying users of the breach four days after it first learned of the incident.
