Like the recent leaks of celebrities nude pics and some of the personal pics, Now, more than 90,000 Private Photos and 9,000 Videos Hacked from the Snapchat app.
Snapchat is a photo messaging application, users can take photos, record videos, add text and drawings, and send them to a controlled list of recipients. These sent photographs and videos are known as “Snaps”. Users set a time limit for how long recipients can view their Snaps (as of April 2014, the range is from 1 to 10 seconds.)
This is something like the Frappening in which most of the known celebrities pics were hacked and posted online.
In the Frappening, Actresses: including Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, Amber Heard, Rihanna,Ariana Grande, Selena Gomez and Cara Delevingne nude images distributed online on various sites, including some of the torrent sites.
This hack said to be a rumor, but who downloaded the pics from the site viralpop.com, says it is not a rumor, all pics are real.
viralpop.com is a bogus website and in the meantime it has been deleted, It is believed that, this site was only build to serve the hacked pics, and before its deletion, the pics have been downloaded worldwide, and now being distributed through sites like Reddit.
The Hacked bundle of pics and videos is of size 13.6 GB.
Snapchat says we are not hacked
Stuff gets hacked like this?
One of the site named snapsaved.com is said to behind this leak, as it was a “third-party app,” a web client compatible with Snapchat that allowed users to store photos and videos sent from Snapchat online, and the site was storing all the private snapchats to on the web server along with the usernames of the users. Now, the website snapsaved.com is not available.
There is a thing that could be possible, if the hacked pics and videos come into a BAD one’s hand, as the company says, most of its users are from 13 to 17 years old, so nude or any personal pic of the user can be used in Child Pornography sites.
The company claims that users send up to 700 million snaps a day, and although Snapchat won’t disclose how many people use the app, reports indicate that it may boast as many as 100 million monthly users.
