Whether they’re attempting to steal your Instagram account to sell it back to you for Bitcoin, or whether they have different plans with it, hackers are more and more interested in gaining access to Instagram properties. A process of recovering access to a hacked account does exist but doesn’t always work, so Instagram has announced several extra security measures to help you get it back even when the hackers also control your email.
A security researcher says he found a flaw in the Instagram website that allowed thousands of users’ email addresses and phone numbers to be exposed online for several weeks.
David Stier, a data scientist and business consultant, told CNET the website’s source code for some Instagram user profiles revealed the users’ contact information when loaded into a browser.
Facebook is investigating a report that claims the private contact data for millions of the influencers, brands, and celebrities who use the company’s Instagram subsidiary has been exposed online.
That news comes via TechCrunch, which recounted in a post on Monday that an unprotected database hosted by Amazon Web Services included private emails and phone numbers for millions of high-profile Instagram users. In all, more than 49 million records were reportedly contained in the database.
