Hackers release 1.7 Million Snapchat account details on Dark Web

Anonymous Indian hackers said that they have released th details of 1.7 million Snapchat users accounts on dark web after that app's CEO (Evan Spiegel) said that india is a "poor country".
According to the Indian hackers, a  vulnerability in Snapchat database was found last year and had found details of 1.7 million users. 
Hackers made these account details accessible on the darknet to show their anger against company's remark for India.
Hackers said they had found the bug earlier but they had never used the data but the 'egotism' of the Snapchat CEO had pushed them to share the data.
But in spite of that, Snapchat has denied that any hack has happened, and so Snapchat's CEO (Evan Spiegel) denied tht he ever said that the app was "only for rich people" and not for "poor countries like India and Spain"but that hasn't stopped the anger of the Indiand users so they have started negative campaign against the app due to which they started to  rate the app on Playstore and apple store with bad ratings add to that they also launched #UninstallSnapchat

and #BoycottSnapchat campaigns on Twitter.
