Recently, security researchers were able to reveal a critical flaw in Snapchat, which allowed a hacker to match Snapchat usernames against actual passwords. Now, a detailed database of 4.6 million Snapchat usernames and phone numbers has been posted online.


SnapchatDB

It seems that before the researchers revealed the exploit last week and it was patched by Snapchat, someone had already made use of it and downloaded information of millions of users. The data has been posted on a freshly created site called SnapchatDB! and is being offered for download as SQL/CSV files.

The good thing is that the last two digits of the phone numbers contained in these files are blurred. However, this may not stop avid hackers or stalkers from getting the information they are looking for.

It is unclear who is behind this site but the purported aim of the website is to raise awareness about the security of Snapchat. According to the site, “The company was too reluctant at patching the exploit until they knew it was too late and companies that we trust with our information should be more careful when dealing with it.”

Moreover, the website is also offering an uncensored version of the entire database, citing, “For now, we have censored the last two digits of the phone numbers in order to minimize spam and abuse. Feel free to contact us to ask for the uncensored database. Under certain circumstances, we may agree to release it.”

Our bet is that this can’t be acquired without at least paying up a certain sum to whoever is running the site. If you have already gone through this, then feel free to share your experience with us in the comments box.
