Instagram bug allows hackers to access phones and emails of celebs

InstagramInstagram has admitted that a bug in the system has granted hackers access to high-profile users’ private information after celebrities including Selena Gomez suffered security breaches.

Selena’s Instagram was hacked and nude photos of her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber were posted to her account earlier this week. It’s unlikely that the bug was the only cause of the breach to Selena’s account but it may have aided hackers in the breach.

Instagram has said that the bug in its application programming interface (API), which programmers use to create software, was quickly closed but has been warning people with verified accounts. The Facebook-owned firm is warning users to be wary of unrecognised phone calls, texts and emails.
