Snapchat was in the news for leaked nude images a few weeks ago

Few weeks ago Snapchat users found their photos listed on the internet. While most were nude pictures, many were random selfies and pictures.

What was surprising was that Snapchat was supposed to be a self destructing chat application where a sender could beam out pictures, videos and text with a self-destructing timer.  The recipient could not save the image in any way.

 

Snapchat was accused of leaking the images from their servers to the internet. However, after a detailed investigation, it was revealed that the leak was not from Snapchat’s servers, but was from another source. It was discovered that a third-party application was being used by several Snapchat users, which was saving the pictures on its servers. This server was breached and the hackers leaked the images to the internet.

Snapchat, being one of the most-used self-destructing messaging applications, has been well-known between smartphone users to send out pornographic or nude pictures to their friends.

And with the recent news of Snapchat starting a service to send money to friends using Snapcash, many users seem to find this the best way to make fast cash by flashing nude pictures.

According to a report on The Register, Snapchat’s Snapcash feature has spawned a new business sector for the amateur porn artists and those who want to enter into the porn industry.

All the aspiring porn actor needs to do is ask for money in return for flashing their nude bodies and sex acts. The money is transferred by Snapcash.

The Register mentioned, ‘The Reg has found several wannabe blue movie stars who have offered to expose their most intimate parts in exchange for donations via Snapcash, the micropayments system introduced by the firm last week.’
