Instagram Attacked By Crazed Fruit-Loving Diet Spammers
If you've recently seen a rash of fruity looking pictures hitting your stream, you're not going crazy and no, your friends aren't trying to get you to join the latest all-fruit dieting craze. It's actually the unfortunate work of spammers. Reportedly a bit.ly link will take you to a counterfit BBC page and that link has sucked in over 30 thousand clicks and counting. Affected users then have photos they don't authorize posted to their photo-stream and even have a URL changed in their user profile.
Facebook and Instagram haven't responded to the issue as of yet but it's sure to get their attention soon, as more and more users are affected. Welcome to the party, Instagram. We have a Nigerian Sugar Daddy that wants to send you a tidy $30.4 million dollars, if only you'd be so kind as to send him your bank account info.
