  • A third-party client app has collected photos and videos from Snapchat
  • Messages on 4chan suggest that up to 200,000 images will be released
  • One poster has claimed that the full leak will take place on 12 October
  • They could be uploaded to a searchable database, which suggests the images will be linked to Snapchat user IDs

Thousands of nude videos and images sent using Snapchat could be leaked over the weekend, hackers have warned.

Earlier this week, an anonymous 4chan user claimed to have obtained images on Snapchat - the ephemeral messaging service that allows users to send pictures that should disappear after a few seconds.

Now, messages posted on the 4chan website suggest that up to 200,000 images will be released soon in an event dubbed 'The Snappening'.

A third-party Snapchat client app has been collecting every photo and video file sent through the message site for years, giving hackers access to a 13GB private library.

But Snapchat has denied that its service was ever compromised.

'We can confirm that Snapchat's servers were never breached and were not the source of these leaks,' Snapchat told MailOnline.

'Snapchatters were victimised by their use of third-party apps to send and receive Snaps, a practice that we expressly prohibit in our Terms of Use precisely because they compromise our users' security.

'We vigilantly monitor the App Store and Google Play for illegal third-party apps and have succeeded in getting many of these removed.'

One poster has claimed that the full leak will take place on 12 October, and will be uploaded to a searchable database, which suggests the images will be linked to Snapchat user IDs.

The warning was first spotted by blogger Kenny Withers, who described it as 'one of the largest data breaches of online profiles.'

'To put this into perspective, just imagine the celebrity nude scandal,' he wrote.

'Now replace iCloud with Snapsave and blow this up by hundreds of thousands of accounts. Now you have the Snappening.'

To prove that he or she had hacked a third-party app, the poster provided pictures allegedly from Snapchat.

But some users have highlighted that they can find the images elsewhere.

While Snapsave has been named by some as the third-party app that was hacked into, an anonymous photo trader told Business Insider it was in fact SnapSaved.com.

The news comes just weeks after hundreds of celebrity nude images were leaked online through 4chan, following a hack of Apple's iCloud in an event dubbed 'The Fappening.'

This isn't the first time Los Angeles-based firm has faced security concerns.

Last year, developers launched a SnapHack app that let users save and re-open Snapchat messages, without the sender ever knowing.

The app followed an announcement by a forensics firm in Utah that discovered a way to find the so-called deleted pics, and created a way to download them from the 'hidden' location.

In May, Orem-based firm Decipher Forensics discovered that Snapchat was saving the images.

And the group said the app's code suggests that it isn't a bug; the developers appeared to have coded the app to do this, despite claiming that all images are automatically destroyed.

Richard Hickman, a digital forensics examiner from Decipher Forensics said: 'The actual app is saving the picture.'

'[Snapchat] claim that it's deleted, and it's not even deleted. It's actually saved on the phone.'

Worse, this app, on a morning news show I was watching the other day was mentioned as a favored app by teens as a way to send nudes, because they believe the photos did get deleted.

Re: Snapchat Hackers Warn Thousands of Nude Images Will Be Leaked on Sunday

lol, I like how EVERYBODY in the media is skipping the issue here.

Its not the fact snapchats have been saved, its the fact a lot of people, mainly women are going to be seen as naked sluts. Feminists are going to have a shit fit. All the social warriors are going to wet their knickers.

They cant accept the fact women want to slut it up and get away with it. But snapchat 3rd party apps says otherwise.

Dont put your snatch/tits in the same pic as your face.

200,000 pics suggests it will be random nude images not specific celebrity pics..

The fact that snapchat is used by a majority of people that are under 18, I'd be willing to bet a large percentage will be underage nude pics. That will probably draw some resources to find this specific hacker or set of hackers.
