Britney Spears has discovered that her Instagram account has been used as a means for communication by Russian hackers!
Named Turla, the group are known within the espionage circles for their targeting of governments, militaries and educational establishments and- much to Britney’s surprise- have turned their gaze to her social media platforms.
A Slovakian security firm has revealed that the message above was posted by Turla via a fake fan account. Why? It contains a hidden message which gives instructions on how to steal important data when activated!
It has since been deleted.
They believe it was a test of sorts, because the link was accessed less than two dozen times.
Why Russian hackers have the world on edge?
