Emails & Numbers of High Profile Instagram Account Hacked by Noblex: 7:55 am On Aug 31, 2017

Instagram says emails & phone numbers of ‘high-profile’ accounts obtained by hackers

Instagram this morning is alerting users that it has suffered a security breach exposing the contact information of “high-profile” users. The news of this h*ck comes just days after celebrity Selena Gomez had her account comprised, but it’s unclear if the two events are related.

Instagram says the breach has revealed the email addresses and phone numbers associated with each account, but passwords were not exposed. The social network attributes the h*ck to someone exploiting a bug in an Instagram API.

Instagram hasn’t specific which accounts were part of the breach, but it says that the API glitch made it possible for the hacker to obtain code that contained the email and phone information of the targeted users, which it believes were “high-profile” accounts only.

In the statement, obtained by Variety , Instagram encourages users to “be vigilant” about the security of their account and to use caution if they receive any recognized calls, texts, or emails.
