Reuters reports on an Under Armour data breach affecting upwards of 150 million MyFitnessPal user accounts:

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.

It is the largest data breach this year and one of the top five to date, based on the number of records compromised, according to SecurityScorecard.

Larger hacks include 3 billion Yahoo accounts compromised in a 2013 incident and credentials for more than 412 million users of adult websites run by California-based FriendFinder Networks Inc in 2016, according to breach notification website LeakedSource.com.

Under Armour said it is working with data security firms and law enforcement, but did not provide details on how the hackers got into its network or pulled out the data without getting caught in the act.

I have yet to locate a single article discussing how the breach occurred or any potential vulnerability exploited by the attackers to gain access to MyFitnessPal data.

If you use MyFitnessPal, I strongly suggest you immediately login and change your password, especially if you reused a password you are using elsewhere [like the vast majority of internet users].

Fox Sports reports Japan beat England and will once again face the United States in the World Cup finals:

Japan advanced to the Women’s World Cup final with a 2-1 win over England on Wednesday thanks to an own-goal in stoppage time to set up an historic rematch. The reigning champions now will face off in Vancouver against the team they beat in 2011, the United States (live, FOX, FOX Sports Go, Sunday, 7 p.m. ET).

England’s Laura Bassett inexplicably poked the ball back into her own net in stoppage time, ricocheting it off the crossbar and giving keeper Karen Bardsley no chance on it. It was a cruel end to the Lionesses’ campaign as in truth they had been the better side by far, but they cracked late.

I love watching Japan play the United States because I am happy no matter which team wins. It literally is a win-win situation for me.
