Snapchat Hack: This Is Why You Don't Post Stupid Stuff

Several reports have been coming out through the weekend and this morning about the popular texting app, Snapchat being hacked. Up to 200,000 photos of teenagers have surfaced, and nearly 13 gigs of content stolen.

Just when you thought those quick posts to a friend were only alive for a few seconds... Right. OK.

Hackers apparently temporarily saved images to a site called, "" where snaps leaves the mobile only environment and can be posted on websites.

Snapchat told the media in a statement: “We can confirm that Snapchat’s servers were never breached and were not the source of these leaks. Snapchatters were victimised by their use of third party apps to send and receive Snaps, a practice that we explicitly prohibit in our terms of use precisely because they compromise our users’ security.”

Let this be a lesson to ya. Don't share stupid stuff.
