    Are you updating this post?

    • I will be updating this post as more details come out, but I really don’t want to be responsible for giving people access to a site that promotes sharing underage nudes. I will follow the big media outlets.

    • Yes, I will be updating this post, specifically if i get emails from members of 4chan or other hacker groups that provide information. I don’t feel comfortable however, providing a link to a site that promotes sharing nude images of underage teens.

    What timezone?

  4. The Fapper says:

    I know a whole lot of people who’s really nervous right now. But hey, it’s only beauty!

    • That’s why it’s so important to never share images you do not want to be made public.

      • Roxie Bozzone says:

        Magnificent site, plenty of useful info here. I am sending it to several friends and also sharing with others. And obviously, thanks for your effort!

      Simply desire to say your article is as astonishing. The clarity in your post is just spectacular and i can assume you’re an expert on this subject. I plan to record your RSS feed to keep up to date with forthcoming posts. Thanks a million and please keep up the enjoyable work.

    • Garsialinde Smith says:

      Thank you for the informative website. Where else could I get that type of info written in such a perfect way?

  5. Daniel Ryan says:

    Where are you getting these pics? And what site is the thread coming from?

  6. Jay says:

    From what I gathered, the problem was that people were using third-party software (which is a clear no no with snapchat) and that got hacked. SnapChat’s servers were never infiltrated.

    • That is my understanding as well. In my blog article and tweets, I made a point of stating that they were Snapchat pictures taken from the cloud service Snapsave.

  7. Henrik says:

    Will you publish the link to the database once it gets uploaded?

  8. Thank you for your great article. I appreciate you clarifying some of the questions surrounding the leak and how it unfolded. The information I’ve received is that they are still not done, and will be publishing the site with the searchable database within the next couple of days.

    • Shane says:

      Your website being entirely about how to generate traffic for your brand and you congratulating yourself on your own post really makes this whole thing seem like a hoax.

      • I have heard this from several people. The actual leak of the images was independently verified by James Cook from Business Insider. Also, from the chatter I have seen on various underground websites, I believe the people responsible for this leak still plan on creating a searchable database website. It is yet to be seen how this website will continue to operate considering the legal implications.

    • I have received messages from the alleged hackers stating that they plan on launching this website Sunday, October 12, 2014. Whether or not this actually happens is yet to be seen.

  9. James says:

    Is it snapsaved the website or snapsave the app that was hacked? As snapsave say they dont even have cloud storage whereas snapsaved was a website.

    • My understanding from the conversations I have read, is that they hacked into the server that hosts the snapsave website. This site is where people would log in and retrieve the snapchat pictures they had saved.

  10. Smithe328 says:

    Magnificent beat ! I wish to apprentice even as you amend your site, how I could subscribe for a blog web site? The account helped me a acceptable deal. I were a little bit acquainted of this your broadcast offered bright transparent concept.

    • My suggestion to anyone that wants to start blogging is to go to wordpress.com or blogger.com and create an account then start writing articles about topics you are passionate about.

  11. Joe Redman says:

    What I don’t understand is how websites like 4chan are still around. This is an incredible breach of security and trust- like the hackers care about the latter. Surely this will suspend the website and the download links? Or is that not allowed? Snapchat will still have a lot to answer for if this isn’t a hoax, even if they are denying any responsibility. What has society come to? Nice work, Kenny.

  12. Zelinsky Signorile says:

    Magnificent goods from you, man. I’ve keep in mind your stuff prior to and you’re simply extremely fantastic. I really like what you’ve received here, really like what you’re saying and the way in which wherein you say it. You make it entertaining and you continue to take care of to stay it smart. I can’t wait to learn much more from you. This is actually a terrific website.

  13. Torrent files with the images and videos have been appearing at various sites across the internet. I have read that those sites are removing the files and banning people within minutes of uploading them.

  14. Kyle says:

    So, were all of the hacked pictures from the website snapsaved.com?

  15. B Bloggs says:

    Okay sorry the link didn’t work. If you google “snapsaved Facebook” it’s the first hit. You’ll find it easy enough once you click through.

  16. Kenneth Skou says:

    People should start using the “mother test”
    Before you do anything, post anything online, share anything with anybody etc. Ask youself this simple question: Is it okay for my mother to see or hear about this??
    If yes: Go ahead
    If no: Don’t do it.

  17. Sonya Moore says:

    Just for confirmation, snap chat itself was never hacked and third party apps used by some snapchat users to save pics was accessed, so if we’ve never used those apps and the people receiving never have we have nothing to worry about?

  18. Havard says:

    Im a bit confused about where the leaked pictures comes from. Are they only stolen from the registerd users of the webpage snapsaved.com or also apps like snapsave ?
