The recent Snapchat controversy on India being stated as a poor nation is not even cooled yet when another tragedy knocks the door of Snapchat. Anonymous Indian Hackers have claimed a hack on Snapchat with confirming the data leak of around 1.7 million users.
According to the hackers, they had found the vulnerability in Snapchat database last year and got the access to data of 1.7 million users which according to them is now leaked on dark web to support the protest against the CEO's statement on India being poor.
The claim also states that the access was gained last year only but they never used it. The recent ''Snapchat-poor countries controversy'' might have led them to take this step.
The hacker group has also asked for an apology from Evan Spiegel, CEO of Snapchat.
Snapchat is already facing huge protest from Indian users with people uninstalling the app and giving negative reviews of the app.
After the whole recent controversy, a spokesperson from Snapchat has specified "Snapchat is for everyone! It's available worldwide to download for free," adding to this the person also added "Those words were written by a disgruntled former employee. We are grateful for our Snapchat community in India and around the world,".
Neglecting the hackers' claim, Snapchat is claiming that all the database is safe better than ever and the users need not worry about anything.
