Security researchers from Checkpoint found the vulnerability with the Instagram app 3rd party library Mozjpeg – an open-source project used by Instagram as its JPEG format image decoder for images uploaded to the service.
An attacker can exploit the vulnerability by sending a target victim via email, WhatsApp, or another media exchange platform.
Once the victim opens the Instagram on their phone the exploitation occurs it allows attackers “full access to any resource in the phone that is pre-allowed by Instagram.”
“At a basic level, this exploit can be used to crash a user’s Instagram app, effectively denying them access to the app until they delete it from their device and re-install it, causing inconvenience and possible loss of data,” reads Check Point blog post .
“A large heap overflow could occur in Instagram for Android when attempting to upload an image with specially crafted dimensions. This affects versions before,” reads the F acebook advisory .
