    4.6 Million Snapchat Accounts Leaked After Startup Brushed Off Security Concern

    January 1, 2014 |

    Millions of Americans may be waking up with more problems than a hangover this New Year’s Day. On Wednesday, a hacker website claimed that it had a list of the user names and phone numbers for 4.6 million people on Snapchat.

    The company behind Snapchat, a 2-year-old app that offers privacy in sending pictures between phones, was warned about the potential for hacking months ago. In August, the Internet security group Gibson Security, or GibsonSec, wrote that it found a vulnerability in Snapchat’s friend-finder feature that would allow a hacker to discover the phone numbers behind user names in the app. When a Snapchat user signs up, he can privately register a phone number so friends who have the user in their phones’ address books can find him in the app. GibsonSec reported that if a hacker uploaded a large list of numbers to a phone, the hacker could then find the phone number behind a Snapchat name.
