The anonymous hacker who claimed to have gained access to the personal data of 1.6 billion users of Snapchat has posted a video online claiming to be behind the hack, and it appears to be a prank.
The video, posted Sunday by the group AnonymousGhost, is one of several posted to YouTube this week claiming to show an attack on Snapchat.
The group posted the video on Sunday evening.
The anonymous hacker, who uses the handle AnonymousGhost on social media, claimed to be the creator of the attack and posted a link to a new video claiming to reveal the identity of the group.
AnonymousGhost said it was the creator behind the attack on Friday, the same day that Snapchat released a security patch that fixes a bug in the app that could have allowed the hacker to bypass security settings to take control of the app.
The video posted on Sunday claims to show the hacker successfully stealing the identity and private messages of millions of Snapchat users.
“We hacked Snapchat.
We are the creators of the Snapchat attack.
This is our first attempt to infiltrate the world of Snapchat,” the hacker said in the video.
The hacker’s video claims to have obtained the Snapchat account information of 1,700,000 Snapchat users and shows the hacker hacking their accounts.
The hackers’ video has garnered more than 200,000 views, according to the site BuzzFeed.
The hackers did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
Snapchat said it had no comment.
The hack comes at a time when Snapchat is in the midst of a push to improve security on the platform, and the company has recently released new software updates that will improve security.
