Anonymous Indian hackers claim to have leaked database of 1.7 million Snapchat users, which they hacked last year. Indian hackers are among the top Bug Bounty hunters in the world working of IT giants finding bug in their system. Hackers said they had found the bug earlier but never used the data but ‘arrogance’ of the Snapchat CEO had miffed them.

According to Indian hackers, they had found vulnerability in Snapchat database last year and had siphoned details of 1.7 million users. Hackers leaked and made this data based available on the darknet to mark their resentment against company’s remark for India. They have further threatened to carry out intensive strike against company on the virtual world till the CEO apologies for his remark.Indian users began uninstalling the app and downgrading its rating to a single star on the app store
