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 Instagram can probably verify if the old email account actually was sent an email. What probably happened is that the receiving email server either didn't work or simply marked the email as spam and tossed it.
