Thanks once again to Gabriela Tudor for her guest blog post.
Recently 6 million Instagram accounts were hacked, including those of some of the biggest names and celebs such as Selena Gomez, Kim Kardashian, Leonardo DiCaprio, Beyoncé, Taylor Swift, and plenty more. But just how did this happen?
In the aftermath, Instagram released a statement saying that a vulnerability was fixed, now protecting the customers phone number and contact email addresses associated with the emails. While this information was supposed to be private anyway, unauthorised parties managed to obtained access to it making it possible for the hacking.
So, how can you protect yourself?
