Victims of the nude celebrity photo hacking scandal are still recovering and speaking out against what has been referred to as a “sex crime.” In more recent days, another hacking case has surfaced, but has yet to affect what could be thousands of Snapchat users. Snapchat is a popular mobile app that allows people to share video and photo content with a friend database.
According to reports, hackers are planning an historical online leak. Up to 200,000 photos and videos, which hackers claim are mostly nude, could be leaked onto the digital forum, 4Chan, which is the same site that hosted the nude photos of celebrities, from Jennifer Lawrence to Kate Upton.
Snapchat communicated via Twitter to their users saying, “We can confirm that Snapchat’s servers were never breached and were not the source of these leaks.”
According to Business Insider’s report, 4Chan users have downloaded 13 Gigabytes’ worth of photos and videos and are creating a database to search the stolen images.
It’s time to bring in an online security watch dog.
