Ce n'est pas la première fois qu'Instagram est confronté à un piratage massif de ses membres. En septembre dernier, des millions de personnes s'étaient fait dérober leurs numéros de téléphone et adresses e-mail. Et il semblerait que ce soit à nouveau le cas.

Selon le spécialiste de la cybersécurité Kaspersky Labs, les attaques visant des comptes Instagram connaissent une forte recrudescence depuis la fin du mois de juillet.

Réseau social très à la mode, avec plus d'un milliard d'utilisateurs dans le monde, Instagram est dans le viseur des pirates du web.

Le plus souvent, les utilisateurs sont trompés par un courriel qui semble provenir d'Instagram et dans lequel on leur demande de renouveler leur mot de passe, puis sont amenés à fournir, sur une page qui est en fait une réplique de celle du réseau social, les informations nécessaires pour accéder à leur compte.

Durant ces dernières semaines, un nombre de plus en plus important d'utilisateurs d'Instagram se sont du jour au lendemain retrouvé déconnecté de leur compte et sans aucun moyen de s'y reconnecter. "Une fois qu'un criminel a piraté l'accès à un compte, il a accès aux données personnelles et correspondances de l'utilisateur" a ajouté Kaspersky Labs.

Sur les réseaux sociaux, Instagram a partagé cette alerte et donné quelques recommandations: "Si vous avez reçu un e-mail de notre part vous informant d'un changement de votre adresse e-mail et que vous n'êtes pas à l'origine de ce changement, veuillez cliquer sur le lien "revert this change" ("annuler cette modification") puis modifier votre mot de passe". Il a assuré " enquêter sur ce problème ". Le réseau social conseille à ses utilisateurs de choisir un mot de passe complexe, combinant chiffres, lettres et signes de ponctuation, et d'utiliser la double authentification afin d'éviter la prise de contrôle par des tiers. Elle rappelle aussi qu'elle dispose d'un système de double identification qui permet aux utilisateurs de sécuriser leur compte via un SMS.
