And now that the image is out of the iPhone, as it were, there's no protecting it from the Philistines trampling the ironically arranged shrubbery with open-toe sandals worn with socks.
Of course, now that everyone is admitted (more than five million downloads in a week) Instagram is more attractive to those who prey on Philistines, too.
Download the app from any site but Google Play (and possibly from Google Play, too, considering its spotty record of identifying malware in apps it offers), and you risk infection from a Trojan known as Andr/Boxer-F, according to security vendor Sophos, which offers a removal tool for Philistines foolish enough to download without protection.
The Trojan, identified first by Trend Micro, mimics Instagram's download page and some of it's install process. Once it's installed it sends SMS messages to premium-rate phone numbers and may collect private data to phone home as well.
Of course, it is imported, but not from anywhere good.
That's Russian on the Instagram click-me ad, but not good Russian – the post-Soviet, neo-capitalist-but-not-too-capitalist, no-longer-Jew-hating, completely anti-Soviet, anti-Putin, completely non-kleptocratic anti-oligopolists wearing skinny jeans and speaking Hipster with those darling Eastern European accents.
No, this is bad Russian – organized, criminal, capitalist without the high moral standards of Wall Street, out to trick consumers into downloading their filthy little malware-infected imitation while pretending it's even possible to learn how to use a deck app like Instagram on something as fin as Android.
If you do check out the Russian virus version (just look, don't download), you'll get one photo-centric treat: the photo of a Russian man in warmup pants who looks inappropriately dressed for a wedding and for inclusion in a Russian Trojan payload.
