Snapchat App Hacked

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.
