Last Friday, reports began to surface that hackers planned to release photos taken from the popular photo sharing service Snapchat's apps servers. The Snapchat app allows users to send photos that will appear for a specified of seconds before disappearing. However, the service has been plagued by third-party apps that enable users to save received photos without notifying the sender. In this leak, overphotos of unwitting Snapchat users were published to popular websites 4chan and Reddit, after a third-party app SnapSaved was reportedly hacked.
In a statement on their FacebookSnapSaved admitted, "We had a misconfiguration in our Apache server. SnapChat has not been hacked, and these images do not originate from their database.
In an interview on Friday, Yaverbaum told me, "These are third-party apps that you give permission to access your information - if you give permission for another app to access it, you're giving everything away. Users of any app connected to Snapchat through its API should be concerned about the security of any information they share, he said, reminding users that their information is not private. Your digital footprint is forever," he said. While Snapsaved. Snapchat said in a statement, "We vigilantly monitor the App Store and Google Play for illegal third-party apps and have succeeded in getting many of these removed.
Just five months ago, however, Snapchat had to settle FTC charges that promises of their messages disappearing were false. According to the FTC's complaint, Snapchat made multiple misrepresentations to consumers about its product that stood in stark contrast to how the app actually worked. Users must take responsibility for their own data security and privacy, said Yaverbaum. Snapchat has an interesting app that I personally wouldn't touch with a ten-foot pole. But I think they do the best they can. So does Home Depot, and Bank leaked snap pics America - everyone tries, but hacking is a sport to these guys.
As long as there are hackers out there, I don't think anything is secure on the internet. Once photos are leaked, the affected users face an exercise in futility in trying to have them removed from the Internet.
Even tracking down each of the websites displaying the photo s is a near impossible task and once they are removed, they pop up on another site - as SnapSaved users have learned. Yaverbaum's advice to users is simple. If you're not, don't put it on the internet! It's that easy. Follow Larry Kim on Twitter.
