Thousands of nude Snapchat images ‘released online’ (Video)

Hackers are planning to publish some 200,000 explicit photos obtained from Snapchat users.

Users on the 4Chan forum, where numerous celebrity leaks have been posted, claim they have got into Snapchat’s system using a third party app.

The group say they have got hold of the private images over a number of years and are threatening to publish them online.

Users claim that they hacked into third-party app Snapsave, which enables Snapchatters to screenshot the images they receive in order to keep pictures which would otherwise expire.

Snapchat claims that the servers were not hacked or breached and they never save any pictures or videos of their customers. They also claim that users who used third-party apps to send messages via Snapchat are the ones who could be behind the crime.

Users who access the Snapchat services using a third-party app and not the official Snapchat app got their images and videos intercepted.

According to BBC, many Snapchat users are aged between 13 and 17, and child pornography is a major concern here.

BBC also reported that Snapchat was active in monitoring the Apple App Store and Google Play Store to dig out and ban the third-party apps.

The hackers had posted the images online, which were taken down. Hovever, they have threatened to post thousands more images.

The report further stated a Business Insider reporter claiming that the hackers boasted of having around 13 gigabytes worth of nude pictures and videos that they have intercepted over the years.

The leak comes in as another disturbing dark side of the internet with regards to security and privacy issues.
