Hacked Instagram Numbers On $ale

 

 

Snapshotblackwhitedress7_001

Hackers established a searchable database named Doxagram allowing users to search for victims’ contact information for $10 per search. The hacker provided a list of 1,000 accounts they said were available for searching on Doxagram to the Daily Beast, and the list included most of the 50 most-followed accounts on the service.

 Doxagram was offline Friday @ 5:50 pm. It was unclear how or when it might come back. It’s also not known if Instagram would had sought to have the site shut down.

But even with the site shut down, contact information for dozens of celebrities now appears to be floating around on the dark web. A cybersecurity firm named RepKnight s found contact information for celebrities including:

  • Actors: Emma Watson, Emilia Clarke, Zac Efron, Leonardo DiCaprio, Channing Tatum.
  • Musicians: Harry Styles, Ellie Goulding, Victoria Beckham, Beyoncé, Lady Gaga and Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Adele, Snoop Dogg, Britney Spears.
  • Athletes: Floyd Mayweather, Zinedine Zidane, Neymar, David Beckham, Ronaldinho.

For celebrities and other high-profile users, the hack could mean having to change a phone number, email address, or both. But it can also be used along with social engineering techniques to gain access to the account itself. That seems to be what happened to Gomez, Instagram’s most-followed user. Her account was briefly taken down Monday after it was used to post nude photographs of Justin Bieber, her ex-boyfriend.

Instagram Gets Hacked

 

 

 On Wednesday, the Facebook-owned photo sharing app revealed that “at least one hacker” managed to steal personal information from a number of high-profile user accounts. Apparently, the breach was caused by a bug in the system, which Instagram says has now been addressed. They 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.

U.S.States With The Most Road Rage

Snapshothybrid2_001

Instagram posts suggest people in Hawai’i are among some of the most heated in the country.

A recent study analyzing Instagram posts with the hashtag #RoadRage led researchers to name Hawai’i as the state with the worst road rage in the nation.

Auto Insurance Center conducted the research to unveil which states had the highest rates of road rage and when.

August was listed as the worst month for angry drivers, with a spike in #RoadRage posts during the month. July was the month with the second highest levels, based on the hashtag, while October and March followed.

#RoadRage appeared on Instagram more often as the week went on, according to the study, with Sunday having the lowest number of posts. The peak appears to be on Friday, with an average of about 10,500 #RoadRage posts nationally.

The analysis shows #RoadRage posts increase throughout the morning and into the lunch hour before peaking in the early evening, or rush hour.

Researchers note that one reason for the high #RoadRage tags on Instagram by Hawai’i users could be the recent ranking of Honolulu as the third-worst traffic in the country and one of 10 states popular for tourists.

Honolulu ranked as the 22nd city in the country when it came to road rage in the same analysis.

California ranked second for #RoadRage posts. The top state for tourism sees more than its share of out-of-state drivers, along with some of the worst traffic congestion in the country. New York, New Jersey, and Nevada followed.

Instagram To Start Rearranging Order Of Posts

Instagram announced it will begin rearranging the order of posts in its feed. Instead of the strictly reverse chronological, Instagram will order posts “based on the likelihood you’ll be interested in the content, your relationship with the person posting and the timeliness of the post.” This means that if you don’t check your feed until the next morning but a friend whose photos you usually Like posted something awesome the night before, it could appear at the top of your feed even if it is hours old. This is how Facebook’s feed works, and how Twitter recently reconfigured its feed to work.
