While users assumed the snaps would only be visible to Snapchat HQ and the third-party app, a data breach left them circulating through the open web. It's still unclear which service is responsible for the breach, although Business Insider is pointing to a now-defunct web service hosted at Snapsaved.
At the same time, many of the leaked photos have also been traced back to a site called Snapchat Leaked, suggesting they may have been in circulation for many months already. We vigilantly monitor the App Store and Google Play for illegal third-party apps and have succeeded in getting many of these removed.
Still, it's a reminder that the proliferation of third-party services can present a real security risk. Social networks like Snapchat often encourage outside developers to build new tools on top of their platform, but those same tools can become inviting targets once attackers decide to go after user data. As Snapchat discovered today, the result can often mean real privacy violations for users, even when company servers are never directly attacked.
