Snapchat Data Breach

1.7M Snapchat user details Posted in India Data Breach

  • Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel might want to tone down his comments while discussing the target demographic for his app to handle a Snapchat Data breach instead..
  • A former employee at Snapchat, instigating a lawsuit, told a Los Angeles court that Spiegel interrupted him as he was making a presentation about the app’s growth prospects overseas. “This app is only for rich people. I don’t want to expand into poor countries like India and Spain,” Spiegel said, according to Anthony Pompliano, who worked at the company for three weeks after moving over from facebook’s product team.
  • After the alleged comments from Spiegel appeared in Variety, hackers in India, as yet unidentified, took the disparaging remarks personally and in an apparent act of revenge claimed to have posted personal details of 1.7 million Snapchat users online, according to a report on UK site Independent.
