Instagram accounts are being hacked by a phishing scam named “The Nasty List”

A phishing scam has been targeting Instagram user’s login credentials and taking over the control on those accounts for its own further promotion.

In this scam, an already hacked account is used to send messages to followers. If you’re one of the followers of that victim’s account then you would get a message consisting a link which will land you on a page named ” The Nasty List” with a bio having a description of why you are on it. In curiosity, if somehow you click on the link mentioned in the description, it will open a fake Instagram’s login page which will look alike original one, except the URL of that login page.The misguided users might enter their login credentials which will let hackers put hands on their accounts.
