The latest online photo hack involves Snapchat. Some 200,000 private photos from the app have been reportedly stolen and leaked online, even though they're supposed to automatically delete after a few seconds. They say it's likely that some of the stolen images belong to underage victims since half of Snapchat's users are between the ages of 13 and 17 and many are also likely to be racy. Of course, this could lead the way to child porn charges against whoever is responsible, assuming that they're ever caught. However, it wasn't the Snapchat app that was responsible, but a website called Snapsaved.com, which allows Snapchat users to save images without the sender knowing. It is not affiliated with Snapchat and they say their servers were breached due a "misconfiguration."

Officers arrived to find Joshue Holoman, covered in roofing tar from trying to break in through an air conditioning shaft. Joshue first said he was visiting family, then said he was an air conditioning technician trying to fix the units because he could hear them making noise from the ground, before finally saying he was on the roof sleeping and rubbed roofing tar on his body so he could not be seen from the ground. Joshue was arrested on burglary charges and, oddly enough, there was no mention of drugs or alcohol anywhere in the story.
