Niall Horan's Instagram hacked

Niall Horan has had his Instagram account hacked.

The singer has found himself as the most recent celebrity to have their social media accounts hacked, as the One Direction star's Instagram page was filled with screenshots from random Snapchat and Instagram accounts as well as a video from Team Error.

The hackers changed the 'History' hitmaker's bio on Instagram to read: "TEAM.ERROR.4.0.4 @rjz @ikp @dr.rghx @u52 @x3azmii @p9j @x.hrb (sic)"

The 'Steal My Girl' singer was celebrating his 23rd birthday when the cyber-attack took place on Tuesday (13.09.16), and the star quickly took to Twitter to explain what was going on with his photo sharing account.

He tweeted: "Something mad is goin on with my insta . Clearly some fool hacked it but they tagged themselves in it... (sic)"

Whilst unconfirmed, the team behind the hacking of the pop megastar's account appear to be the same people who also hacked 35-year-old Tom Hiddleston's account last month. Both attacks featured the "TEAM.ERROR.4.0.4" label in the bio, as well as having screenshots of the same Snapchat account belonging to someone called Mr. Control.

On the 'Thor' actor's account, the so-called Mr. Control wrote: "Afford to take the injustice of people but when my turn will not have mercy on one. Fans Tom hiddleston Don't worry we will back account to him (sic)"

Niall now seems to have also gained control of his account again as the pictures from the hacking have been deleted, and his bio has returned to normal.
