Snapsaved confirms that they stole Snapchat photos, but it was only 500 megabytes

Last week we discussed a new problem related to stolen photos. In this case the victim was the users of Snapchat, although the theft of the content was not carried out in the database of said application and yes in that of Snapsaved.com, application that accesses Snapchat data to save photos on your server (something prohibited according to the terms of use of Snapchat) .

Initial information spoke of 13 gigabytes of photos stolen from Snapsaved’s database, tens of thousands of photos from a website that no longer existed, but had a security problem on its server that allowed unauthorized access and disclosure. Of content.

Now those responsible for Snapsaved comment in this Facebook post that it was not 13 gigabytes, it was only 500 megabytes (about 10,000 photos), but they do recognize the invasion, and apologize for it.

Even so, they assure that they have always fought against child pornography, even reporting such activities to the authorities, so the stolen photos are clean of this type of content (according to them, of course).

The databases have already been removed and all holes plugged, so there is no danger of the invasion repeating.

They assure that the problem has not been from Snapchat, a company that surely has pressed for this confession to be made public, thus cleaning the name of a network that has always guaranteed the privacy of information and the self-destruction of images.
