Snapchat got hit by elaborate hack. 100,000 private photos are in hands of hackers.
Snapchat is supposed to be a save way to exchange naughty photos as the photos have an expiration date and the images disappear unless a hacker got in between. 4Chan users already call it the Snappening in relation to the huge celebrity photo hacking scandal that involved the Apple iCloud. That hack is referred to as the Fappening.

It is not clear yet which 3rd party Snapchat app got hacked. A lot points towards a now discontinued SnapSaved.
