Snapchat Hacked. 4.6 Million Usernames and Phone Numbers Stolen.

Popular image-driven messaging platform, Snapchat, was recently hacked – according to our friends at iClarified. The site this week highlights a website called snapchatdb.info, that alleges to allow the download of 4.6 Million usernames (and phone numbers) of those currently using the service.

The website states:

“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.”

The file is available to download as a whole, in either a SQL dump, or in CSV format. According to the report, the security hole originally used to siphon the credentials from the company’s servers has since been patched. That said, those who find themselves already on the list of 4.6 Million users affected by the breach, may want to change their password – just in case.

Check if you’re on the list.

UPDATE

Well, that was quick. It would appear the website is currently unreachable.
