HighProxies.com Reveals the Story Behind Instagram’s 6 Million Hacked Accounts

Find out if the attack on Selena Gomez’ Instagram account really triggered the public’s conclusion that the attackers’ main targets are celebrities alone.

Are you an Instagram user? If so, how long have you been using Instagram? If you’ve been tuned up with the latest news, you would have probably heard rumors about the new hacking case on social media already. Though some of the active Instagram users are not really aware of this hacking case, it is better to be ahead for your safety too than say sorry later. Thus, the top seller of proxy servers, HighProxies is here to reveal the real story behind the 6 million hacked Instagram accounts.

Celeb Instagram Attack

According to HelpNetSecurity, Instagram has recently released a patch for a service’s API bug which gave way for hackers to attack Instagram users. The hackers were able to access the contact numbers, and or email address of an estimated 6 million users. The attackers took advantage of the risk by stealing the contact information of high-profile Instagram users like the singer and actress Selena Gomez.

HighProxies confirmed that Selena Gomez’s Instagram account was put at risk which triggered the fear among Instagram users. The attack made the public assume that the attackers’ targets are high profile and celebrity accounts. But, The Windows Club revealed that is has been made clear that even “regular” Instagram accounts are on the “hit list” of hackers. Instagram’s CTO, Mike Krieger confirmed that a bug did expose their users’ details but they are already patching things up with the law enforcement.

Your Password is Safe!

Based on Mike’s complete statement, HighProxies has validated that no other Instagram activities or password were extracted by the hackers. Mike’s full statement reads,

“We care deeply about the safety and security of the Instagram community, so we want to let you know that we recently discovered a bug on Instagram that could be used to access some people’s email address and phone number even if they were not public. No passwords or other Instagram activity was revealed. We quickly fixed the bug, and have been working with law enforcement on the matter. Although we cannot determine which specific accounts may have been impacted, we believe it was a low percentage of Instagram accounts.”

$10 on Doxagram

Reports claimed that the hackers are Russians who created a searchable database called Doxagram. Doxagram contains all the stolen information of 6 million Instagram users and sold for just $10. 1,000 accounts were already revealed by hackers as available on Doxagram which includes 50 “most-followed accounts”. But now, The Windows Club has already confirmed that Doxagram was already offline.
