The creators of Snapchat have responded to the release of millions of users' details, exposed when hackers published a partially redacted database matching usernames to phone numbers, but have stopped short of issuing an apology.
The database of millions of US users was uploaded by an anonymous group called SnapchatDB. The last two digits of phone numbers were redacted "to minimise spam and abuse", but the group said it would consider releasing the unredacted data "under certain circumstances".
