Earlier this week, Variety reported that Instagram account of actress and singer Selena Gomez, the world’s most followed person on the photo-based social network, was hacked. The hackers also posted NSFW pictures of her ex-boyfriend and pop star Justin Bieber via her account. Eventually, the account was restored.

Now, the Facebook-owned service has revealed that the hackers have exploited a bug related to an Instagram API and accessed the email address and phone number of high-profile users. The number of the affected users hasn’t been revealed.
