A security vulnerability discovered on Instagram

The most expensive things are not the safest. This is what must be said that Mark Zuckerberg has bought Instagram for a billion dollars in April 2012. The mobile application for sharing photos is not so reliable as that. This is Sebastian Guerroro, a specialist who, after having alerted Facebook without return, decided to prevent 40 million potential users by disclosing information on his blog.


Facebook was quick to react. The social network says that this problem appears in “very special circumstances” and admits that the relationship between two “friends” could become established incorrectly. However, it reassured its users by indicating that there is no evidence that people have abused this bug. Few people still don’t know about Instagram and below written information will guide you through
