Snapchat leak reveals phone numbers, usernames of 4.6 million users

 

snapchat users beware: someone has posted the phone numbers and usernames of more than 4.6 million accounts on the site SnapchatDB, freely available as an SQL dump or CSV text file for anyone to download. The last two digits of each phone number have been censored ?in order to minimize spam and abuse,? but the owner of the database says that ?under certain circumstances,? the site might be willing to release the uncensored records.

 

This giant leak comes just days after Gibson Security?s latest interview in which the company warns of Snapchat?s vulnerabilities. According to Gibson Security, the Snapchat team had taken far too long to address some very serious issues with the coding of the software, and had left the application wide open to exploits that could compromise user information. It has been less than a week since that interview, and now an entire database of phone numbers and usernames is just a click away.

Then why publish the data in the first place? What else do they think the data will be used for?

Well, so the developers did nothing and now are paying the price? Good?
