Hackers steal personal details from high-profile accounts on Instagram

01 September 2017 14

There is no rest for the wicked and hackers keep proving this to be true. Their constant efforts have culminated in instilling fear in millions of people. While ransomware is a malicious attack on a wide scale, hackers are even trying their luck by hacking into sensitive data on popular social media giants. A hack on Instagram led to a controversial scandal where the account of the celebrity Selena Gomez was compromised. This lead to rather private pictures of Justin Bieber appearing on Instagram.

Facebook, owners of Instagram were quick to address the matter and confirmed that personal details from high-profile accounts, including email IDs and phone numbers, had been stolen as a result of an API bug. Facebook was quick to resolve the issue but could they do it without any damage being done? Well, sadly, not entirely! The hackers were able to procure certain information from the targeted accounts. However, no passwords were stolen or exposed and all such account users were notified of the breach.

Here’s what a representative of Instagram had to say:

Our main concern is for the safety and security of our community. As always, we encourage people to be vigilant about the security of their account and exercise caution if they encounter any suspicious activity such as unrecognized incoming calls, texts and emails.

What can users do to keep their accounts safe? Well, not too much it seems although Instagram does have a two-factor authentication method which helps keep your account a little more secure

I just want to say how great it is to work with Stephen Hacker and how much hope they have restored in my life. Getting my spouse messages directly on my phone was like a dream that will never become a reality(at least not anytime soon). I had unsuccessfully used other hackers with no results and no feedback, but in only a few hours of working with him, I have been able to get my life back and have a brighter future!” A very big thanks to him, my relationship is now in its best form. He’s completely amazing. Contact him via email spyservicesbesthacker@gmail.com

You’ve probably wondered before, “If my husband cheated on me, How would I know? That’s a question I kept asking myself. Well, statistically, a lot of women do most infact, including me.
I’d been married for 2 years battling with lies & cover ups my husband dish out. I’d had my doubts about the amount of time my husband was spending with his female assistant. But with a big project at their office, it made sense—or so I told myself. I was too ashamed to even mention it to my colleagues at work cos I had no concrete evidence but this faithful day I was really sad & needed to talk to someone, had a talk with my neighbour’s daughter, she told me about her friend & how he is an expert. I contacted him and he was able to clone my husbands phone the same day without having physical access with it, I got full access to his messages, call logs & chats. That was how I got all the proof I needed to confront him. Glad I contacted him. You can reach him on binacouragecyberhost@gmail.com

Even though i have discourage my friends severally about hiring a private investigator to catch their cheating partners,
i resorted to hiring one during my divorce. My husband hid his affair too well and i had no evidence to prove his infidelity
to the court so i had to go back to my friend who am grateful didn’t listen to me back then to refer me to the hacker she
is working with and i told him my problem. His service are topnotch which made working with him very easy, he got me everything
i needed within 24 hours and it was amazing, i paid upfront cause the trust was already there and i got great results because
i currently have my husband’s messages diverted to my phone, call logs, Facebook messenger, WhatsApp, instant chat, Viber, Skype,
password, retrieved all his deleted messages.The best part about his service is that you do not need any physical access or
installation to the phone you wish to hack, so it was all hell break loose for my husband when i presented the evidence in court
and i got everything i deserve. you can contact him for help via his mail donarldjacksoncyberhost@gmail.com

I highly recommend this fair service. Wizard James Recovery Service did a fantastic job at recovering my life savings which got stolen. I had a stressful situations going on and they were so patient with me and did help me through this.
