Indian hackers claim to leak database of 1.7 million Snapchat users

Indian hackers claim to leak database of 1.7 million Snapchat users

Pompliano said that when he tried offering ways to expand, Spielgel said he doesn't want to expand in "poor countries" such as India and Spain and the is for "rich". "Obviously, Snapchat is for everyone!" a Snap spokesperson said on Sunday in a press briefing. We're inviting 250 to exhibit at TNW Conference and pitch on stage! Furthermore, the number of one-star rating by the users shot up from 39,102 to 192,906 in just 24 hours, with many users criticising the CEO for his comments.

In fact, Indians have already successfully driven Snapchat's rating on the Apple App store down to one star from five stars.

Now that users in the market Spiegel allegedly insulted are hearing about his comments, they're deleting the app.

A former employee of Snap, Anthony Pompliano, filed a lawsuit against the company that was recently unsealed and publicly reported on after Snap dropped its efforts to stop the filings from being kept secret.

That may not be enough to pacify Indians who are feeling so insulted that they can't even correctly identify the app they're enraged by.

1 dead, 3 hurt in Atlanta transit station shooting
One person was killed, while three others were wounded, according to authorities, in the incident on the Blue Line. According to a statement from Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority, the shooting happened about 4:30 p.m.

The messaging-app company has made a remarkable debut into NYSE with its Initial Public Offer (IPO) in November previous year. People began uninstalling the app and gave it poor rating and reviews on Google Play as well as App Store.

Last evening, Snapchat released a statement that dismissed claims made by Pompliano. The hackers have also threatened to intensify their attack on the app till Spiegel apologises for his remarks.

The app had also been trolled all over Twitter as #boycottsnapchat has become the platform's highest trending hashtag overnight.

This has done little to stem the flow of negative publicity flowing in from angry users on social media offended by Spiegel's alleged remarks.

According to one of the employees, Spiegel had during a meeting said, "This app is only for rich people". It does not include India or Spain. Snapchat has over four million users in India.
