Snapchat hack made easy— Graham Smith tells about hacking Snapchat accounts was done. The move led to Smith getting a job interview from the company.
High School Sophomore Graham Smith tells “Bloomberg West’s”Emily Chang how he was able to hack into Snapchat, using the exact same vulnerability they claimed they had fixed, to get the company’s CTO cell phone number and text him about it their problem.
This statement comes after he was able to hack Snapchat’s system to find the cell number of Snapchat CTO Bobby Murphy to text him about the flaws. After that exchange, Snapchat boosted security once again, but Smith says that he can still access phone numbers. It’s simply a longer process than it was before.
Smith actually worked off the original Snapchat hack, re-writing it to work around any changes that Snapchat had made to its security.
Hackers appear to have posted account info for 4.6 million users of quickie social-sharing app Snapchat, making usernames and at least partial phone numbers available for download, According to CNN report.
The data were posted to the website SnapchatDB.info. By late Wednesday morning, that site had been suspended.
