(Radio.com) Pop star Britney Spears is reportedly a victim of hackers, according to a report from the Slovakian security firm ESET that surfaced earlier week.

The report revealed that the hackers used Spears' Instagram comment section to communicate covert malware instructions. In February, a hacker wrote the seemingly harmless comment, "#2hot make loved to her, uupss #Hot #X" on one of the singer's posts.

Hidden within the comment was a trackable hashtag that would connect to the malware's command-and-control server. Read the social media site's response here.
