Young boy of 10 years awarded prize of $10 thousand for hacking into Instagram

A 10 year old hacker described as a 'security expert' and identified as 'Jani', was awarded a prize of $10,000 for hacking into Instagram's security system.


According to reports, the 10 year old successfully found a loophole that would enable anyone delete comments left by users on any IG User page. 

Facebook's bug bounty programme which hands out cash prizes to people who find flaws in the company's security system so they can be fixed, awarded him $10,000 for his discovery.
