SnapChat Database Leaked – 4.6 million users affected

Snapchat Cover

Website called SnapchatDB! has released SQL/CSV files that claims to contain the username and associated phone number for a “vast majority” of the service’s users, with the last two digits of the numbers obscured. That amounts to 4.6 million pairs, although actually downloading the files to actually use them or verify the claim seems impossible, presumably due to site bandwidth limitations.

According to their website

“You are downloading 4.6 million users’ phone number information, along with their usernames. People tend to use the same username around the web so you can use this information to find phone number information associated with Facebook and Twitter accounts, or simply to figure out the phone numbers of people you wish to get in touch with.”

This Stunt is carried out to increase public awareness.. 🙂

“This information was acquired through the recently patched Snapchat exploit and is being shared with the public to raise awareness on the issue. “

No apparent details of the Snapchatdb Owners on WhoIs
