We at 4CAST never got into the Snapchat craze. But we have some friends who are super addicted to the social network, that lets you auto-destroy the images which you share with others. If you are one of those who are crazy about the service, then be warned that your phone number and usernames have been exposed.

A security firm, Gibson Security, revealed that they have notified Snapchat about a vulnerability earlier, that would let the hackers access the username and phone numbers of the users using Snapchat. But then, Snapchat replied back in a blogpost claiming that this is a non-issue, and that the company will not be worried about this.
