4.6 million Snapchat photo app usernames, phone numbers hacked & leaked online

users of popular photo sharing app Snapchat had their phone numbers and usernames exposed online after the data was captured by anonymous hackers. The leak comes months after Snapchat was warned of a major security hole.

The New Year may have only just started, but for Snapchat developers it has already been marked by the greatest security fail in the mobile app’s history.
