Snapchat In Major Security Breach

Venice-based social photo messaging service Snapchat had a major security breach over the holidays, when at least 4.6 million user names and phone numbers on the service were publicly published to the Internet. The breached data was apparently published via a post to Reddit. A number of security firms have published online tools to help users figure out if their data was exposed in the hack. Snapchat has not yet responded to the reports on the leaked data.
