Spam is the latest problem for Snapchat users
The interesting thing about the post is that Snapchat claims that the increase in spam was unrelated to the recent leak of 4.6 million user names and phone numbers that was posted on a web site late last year. The company said that it is beefing up the site to make it more secure. A firm called Gibson Security had earlier called out Snapchat for not adding 10 lines of code that could have closed the exploits that led to the leak of names and numbers.

My coworker was complaining about that on Saturday. I personally haven't had it happen, but he showed us some of the adds coming into his phone.

Where there is people and new communications the spammers will be there!
