hypnosec (2231454) writes "Just days after Australia-based Gibson Security disclosed two hacks in Snapchat that could allow hackers to gain access to personal data of its users, hackers have managed to get their hands onto basic information of 4.6 million Snapchat users and have leaked it online partially censored. The database dump is available on SnapchatDB and allows anyone to grab it as a SQL dump or CSV text file. The hackers have claimed that they managed to siphon off the data through a recently patched exploit and that they have leaked the details to raise awareness on the issue. “This information was acquired through the recently patched Snapchat exploit and is being shared with the public to raise awareness on the issue”, reads a statement on SnapchatDB."
