Russian Hackers Hiding Dangerous Malware In Comments Of This Singer’s Instagram!


The biggest news about Russian Hacking – is coming from the workd of music (and Instagram).

Security experts say that malware was planted in the comments section of a Britney Spears Picture that was posted to Instagram.

Security expert Jean-Ian Boutin uncovered a bit.ly link hidden in the comment, which was linked to a malicious extension for the Firefox internet browser designed to steal people’s data.

“There were only 17 hits recorded on this link in February, right around the time the comment was posted,” explained Mr Boutin. 

“However, this is quite a low number and might indicate that it was only a test run.”

ESET says Turla, a hacker group that’s believed to have links to the Russian government, was behind the attack.

So, be careful commenting on clicking on links in a comments section – they say this practice could easily spread to social media superstars of all music genres.
