A security flaw was found in the Instagram application


A major security flaw was recently discovered by a user on Instagram, who immediately notified Facebook of the incident.

On GitHub, information has been published on a very substantial security flaw within the Instagram app for iOS, which could allow an attacker to gain full access to the account on the social network.

Steve Graham posted the information, reporting that:

There is talk of a very dangerous flaw, which endangers both our sensitive data and our photographs or videos.

If you don’t want to run into this flaw, and therefore don’t risk it, we advise you to exit the application and delete it, at least until an update is released that will plug the flaw.
