Snapchat Hack: 200,000 'Self-Destruct' Nude Images Set to Leak in 'The Snappening'.


Snapchat Hack: 200,000 'Self-Destruct' Nude Images Set to Leak in 'The Snappening'. (IBTimes).

Hackers have warned that thousands of nude images sent via the mobile-messaging service Snapchat, many of which users believed self-destructed after being sent, are to be released online in a searchable database.

Messaging boards on the notorious website 4chan have been filling up with news of the imminent leak, already being referred to as "The Snappening".

It comes just weeks after hundreds of celebrity nudes were leaked online through the same site, following a hack of Apple's iCloud that has come to be referred to as the Fappening.

Earlier this week an anonymous 4chan user claimed to have hacked into Snapsave, an image-saving service that allows users of Snapchat to store pictures received before they self-destruct.

Given the nature of the Snapchat service, many of the images are expected to be of an explicit nature, while the young demographic of Snapchat's users could mean that some of the images released constitute child pornography.

By way of proof, the poster provided pictures allegedly from Snapsave. Read the full story here. More here from BusinessInsider.
