Scary stuff. Please teach your kids how to use technology responsibly.
Thousands of children, some as young as 10, are facing the horror of seeing nude pictures of themselves posted on the net.
Message boards on a notorious website called 4Chan have been inundated with details of the “The Snappening”.
Hackers claim they have managed to break in to another image-saving service that allows users of Snapchat to store pictures received before they vanish.
As proof, they have reportedly posted pictures allegedly taken from this third party app but have since deleted them.
Half of Snapchat users are aged between 13 and 17, and there are grave fears that tens of thousands of leaked images will be of under-age UK children who have been persuaded or bullied into sending naked shots of themselves.
