Oops, they did it again!  It appears Russian hackers have struck the Instagram account of Britney Spears.

Rolling Stone reports her account was used to communicate malware codes that were hidden in the comments of one of her pictures.

The security firm ESET published a report in Engadget alleging some comments on her page contain covert malware instructions, including one from a Russian group that has a history of targeting  government agencies and officials.

Britney has almost 17 million followers on Instagram.  So far she has not commented on the hack, but the comment has been deleted so you don’t have to worry about getting any toxic viruses on your phone or computer.
