A new Snapchat hack has been discovered by Jamie Sanchez, a Spanish security researcher. The hack will allow hackers to overload your Snapchat inbox with messages and finally crash your phone.
The hackers can send hundreds of messages within seconds(similar to the concept of Denial-of-Service attacks in the Web arena) which will require the user to restart their iPhone.
