Hacker Targeting U-M Football Accounts – Sports Illustrated

If you're a student athlete at the University of Michigan, or anywhere else for that matter, you may want to double-check your social media accounts and make sure they are secure. 
On Wednesday, a hacker took over The Winged Helmet account on Instagram. Shortly after doing so, the hacker then targeted several University of Michigan football players – successfully hacking the accounts of Braiden McGregor, Colston Loveland and former Wolverine, Jalen Mayfield. The hacker also targeted the accounts of U-M quarterback JJ McCarthy and running back Blake Corum, but fortunately both athletes weren't impacted.
In addition to using the account, the hacker is also using the account of former Oregon Ducks Baseball player, Kenyon Yovan, to prey on other student athletes in an effort to steal their accounts as well.  
Here's how the scam works:
While some may view the loss of a social media page as rather insignificant, the reality is that many student athletes are able to capitalize on NIL opportunities as a result of their social media presence. For a student athlete who has secured an NIL deal that includes promoting products or services, the loss of a social media presence could also mean the loss of a significant deal. 
As it stands today, the hacker is still in control of both verified Instagram accounts — The Winged Helmet and Kenyon Yovan — and is still actively using them to scam other individuals. In spite of many requests to Instagram for assistance, the social media platform has been completely unresponsive.
