Popular Mobile App Hacked

UNDATED (WKRC) -- A popular social-sharing app has been hit by hackers.

Account information for 4.6 million Snapchat users appeared online Tuesday.  The app lets people share photos or short videos that disappear after a few seconds.

User names and at least partial phone numbers were available for download on a website.  By late Wednesday morning that site had been suspended.

The hackers released a statement to technology blog, "TechCrunch."  In it they said they released the information in an effort to put pressure on Snapchat to beef up security.
