Instagram isn’t saying much, but Spigot Inc will spill the beans… or should I say bugs. Although we do not know much more than what is reported from Mashable, and some tweets by high profile Insta accounts… if you’re reading this and are getting random calls or emails, Spigot Inc thinks you might be more famous than you thought!
Instagram reports, “We recently discovered that one or more individuals obtained unlawful access to a number of high-profile Instagram users’ contact information — specifically email address and phone number — by exploiting a bug in an Instagram API,” an Instagram spokesperson told Mashable via email. “No account passwords were exposed. We fixed the bug swiftly and are running a thorough investigation.”
All 700 million of you Instagram users… be careful!
