Last week, rumors surfaced regarding a potential hack of Snapchat photos. On October 14, Snapchat announced that their servers had not been compromised and instead an unauthorized third-party app, SnapSaved.com, had been hacked.
The cyber attack is being dubbed “The Snappening.”
Snapchat is a social media smartphone app that allows users to send self-destructing photos and videos. SnapSaved is a web-based client that allowed users to secretly save these images without the sender’s knowledge.
