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!

Maybe they hacked the old email rather than Instagram directly?
They could have deleted the email...

That was my first thought, too. No signs of that, though.
