VENICE, CA – Internet hackers have been busy.
It’s being reported that Snapchat, the app which lets users share photos and videos which disappear after a few seconds, was targeted by hackers who claim they wanted to expose security flaws within the system. 4.6 million phone numbers and usernames were reportedly exposed.
In the meantime, activists in Syria appear to have just pulled off a major hack as well.
It’s believed that the Syrian Electronic Army broke into Skype’s Twitter, Facebook and official blog, posting messages that people should avoid Microsoft email services because “they are monitoring your accounts and selling the data to the governments.”
Skype is owned by Microsoft. The SEA supports President Assad.
Skype says no user information was leaked.
