In a recent attack, Snapchat users were able to lose to their private images that were sent using the app. The mobile messaging app, which is famous for the deleting the messages and images within 24-hours, or once delivered, data that was dumped on the 4Chan. However, Snapchat took no responsibility of the attack as they were able to deliver the pictures safely, whereas the users stored them on their device insecurely.

It is without a doubt that achieving security for a product is a process, and sometimes humans tend to be the weakest link in it. All the images that are sent over Snapchat go through a secure channel, and there are least chances of eavesdropping, unless the attacker gets hold of user’s device in one way, or another. Snapchat says that they were able to delete the images successfully. However; some users stored them insecurely and the result is horrifying.

“We can confirm that Snapchat’s servers were never breached and were not the source of these leaks,” Mary Ritti, a spokeswoman for the company, said in a statement. “Snapchatters were victimized by their use of third-party apps to send and receive Snaps, a practice that we expressly prohibit in our Terms of Use precisely because they compromise our users’ security.”

Whereas on the flip side, the Snapchat leak looks real but is not having the porn mostly. There were pictures of dogs; people and lot were more other than nude selfies. It is now very clear that the Snapchat is solely for not sharing pornography, but also the normal pictures such as of a dog or any other pet or anyone else for that matter.
