Snapchat CEO's Account May Be Among 4.6 Million Compromised by Hackers

Names and phone numbers taken


Snapchat co-founder and Chief Executive Evan Spiegel may be among the 4.6 million users of the service whose user names and phone numbers were exposed this week by hackers.

When searching for "evanspiegel" in either or the Gibson Security Lookup, the user name is listed among those whose corresponding phone numbers were leaked. Spiegel's Twitter handle is @evanspiegel, so "evanspiegel" could be his Snapchat user name.
