Report: Indian hacker group leaks data of 1.7 million Snapchat users
Snapchat, the popular photo and video sharing application recently came into dark news when an ex Snapchat employee claimed that the company CEO "Evan Spiegel" said some unsavory things about Indian and Spaniard users of Snapchat.

#BoycottSnapchat and #Uninstall_Snapchat tags were trending on twitter as well as other Social media platforms, when users got to know that Snapchat had no plans to expand the business to "poor countries" like India and Spain, and the app was only meant for "rich people."



Now, Indian hacker group has reportedly claimed to leak the data of nearly 1.7 million Snapchat users. The hacker group has made the database available on the darknet to mark their resentment against company's remark for India. 

These Anonymous Indian hackers are among the top Bug Bounty hunters in the world looking to find vulnerabilities and bugs in systems of IT giants.



However, the company has not confirmed any leaks yet. In the meanwhile, Snapchat has started pushing notifications to the users trying to uninstall it from their devices. Upon making an attempt to uninstall Snapchat, it gives users a notification message "Deleting Snapchat will make Snapchat poor."
