Instagram Has A New Foe: Instainsane, That Performs Multi-threaded Brute Force Attacks

Here it comes Instainsane, a Shell Script to perform multi-threaded brute force attack against Instagram. It can bypass login limiting and test infinite number of passwords, with a rate of about 1000/min with 100 attemps at once

It’s dubbed Instainsane, and is a dangerous Shell Script to perform multi-threaded brute force attack against Instagram. It has been reported by KitPloit. This script can bypass login limiting and it can test infinite number of passwords, with a rate of about 1000 passwords/min with 100 attemps at once. Furthermore, it uses an Android ApkSignature to perform authentication, in addition using TOR instances to avoid blocking. The software uses Instagram-py algorithm (Python), developed by a user nicknamed Antony jr. Its features are: Multi-thread (100 attempts at once), Save/Resume sessions, Anonymous attack through TOR, Check valid usernames, Default password list (best +39k 8 letters), and Check and Install all dependencies.

The best way to counter tools like Instainsane is to use robust passwords and change them frequently. Furthermore, to reduce the attack surface, it’s imperative to adopt different passwords for all the logins

Instainsane it’s just the last of dangerous tools developed by  malicious hackers to launch brute force cyber attacks on Instagram. On March, the social media platform has been down around the world for several hours, with unidentified technical problems causing widespread disruptions. Different sourced have speculated over about a possible huge brute force attack, but the company denied. However, the best way to increase own cyber security against these threats are robust passwords, that have to be changed frequently. Furthermore, it’s imperative to not use the same password for all the logins. In this way a possible victim would reduce the attacks surface. On contrary, he would give bad actors and cybercrime access to all his digital (and probably real) life.
