If you’ve downloaded the app Instagram for Android, you could be in for a huge cell phone bill.

A clone site offers an infected version of the Android app which sends SMS messages to premium services, running up enormous bills.

The app has millions of users around the world, and was recently acquired by Facebook for $1 billion.

Android users are at risk if they downloaded the app from sites other than the official Google Play Market.
