Snapchat blames other apps for nude photo leak

Tech Industry
In this episode we're searching for some good karma. I'm Bridget Carey and this is your C-net update. [MUSIC] How about we start off with some advice. Don't trust Snapchat or any app as a way to send or save private photos, because everything you share online has a way of getting out. And here is yet another awful example. It's reported that 200,000 photos from Snapchat users are being leaked online. And the database includes nude photos collected over the course of four years, many that could be from underage users. Some have nicknamed this scandal the Snappening, but it's not SnapChat that was hacked. Rather this is coming from a separate app that people downloaded to save the disappearing SnapChat images. The whole point of SnapChat is that the photos and videos you send to people are automatically deleted after being viewed. As of this report, there's debate on whether this is a hoax, questioning if these photos are really from SnapChat users. Some debate which app is to blame, but it could be something called Snapsave. Snapchat has distanced itself in a statement, saying that it's not responsible, and it put the blame on outside apps. Just realize everything has a way of being hacked these days. Not even your Orange Julius is safe. Dairy Queen is the latest company to be hit by hackers. Customer credit and debit card numbers were stolen from nearly 400 Dairy Queen stores along with some Orange Julius stands. If you shopped at a Dairy Queen between August and October you should order a new card. With all these hack attacks, we could use some good karma to turn things around. And the CEO of Microsoft is also in short supply after putting his foot in his mouth by giving terrible career device. At a conference for winning in technology, Satya Nadella was asked how women should ask for a pay raise. He responded that women shouldn't ask, and just trust in karma to give them the rewards they deserve. Considering women don't get paid as much as men, that whole karma thing hasn't really worked out so well for women. He has since backtracked to say he was wrong. Admitting there is a gender pay gap problem and women should ask for raises. So, how about we cheer things up a bit before we end with some quirky gadgets? Playstation fans may be interested in Sony's new smartphone the Xperia Z3. Which could be hooked on a controller to play games, stream from a Ps4 console. A special version is coming to Verizon later this month with wireless charging abilities. And how about a tablet with a built in projector? Lenovo's Yoga Tablet 2 Pro has a rounded hinge with a kickstand to prop it up. But inside the hinge is a projector. The tablet costs $500 and will be out in time for the holidays. That's your tech news update from our studios in New York. I'm Bridget Carey.
