A friend's instagram account apparently got hacked, and their username, email and password changed.
Has anyone experienced this before? According to Instagram, the old email account should have received an email about that name/email change, which didn't seem to happen.
I can't make sense of how they managed to hack that account. Any pointers appreciated!

@fribbledom I've heard similar stories. I suspect password re-use is a major part of it, given that none of the users affected used password managers.
