Instagram hack: Celebrity contact details revealed
Instagram hack: Celebrity contact details revealed: Instagram has revealed a flaw in its systems revealed “a number of” stars’ phone numbers and email addresses to cyber-attackers. The Facebook-owned social network has emailed verified members, usually prominent figures, to let them know.
It said it believed “one or more” attackers had targeted high-profile stars to get their contact information.
Instagram said passwords had not been stolen but warned users to watch for suspicious activity on their accounts.
However, it did not say which accounts had been affected.
The security breach was made possible due to a bug in the company’s own software.
Its application programming interface (API) was at fault, it said – but added that the bug had since been fixed.
The company warned its verified users to “be extra vigilant” about unexpected phone calls, texts, and emails.
Instagram has more than 500 million users worldwide, some 300 million of which use it once a day.
