SnapChat Source Code Leaked

KFC’s secret recipe is hand-written on a yellow pad and locked in a state-of-the-art safe in Kentucky. Coca Cola also keeps it’s formula in a safe, accessible only by two executives at any one time. When you’re a Silicon Valley Unicorn, the one thing you’d want to keep in a vault is your source code. It’s kinda like the secret sauce. So you can imagine what is was like when Snapchat, the wildly popular social media app, discovered that it’s source code had been leaked by hackers and posted on the Microsoft-owned code repository, GitHub. The top-secret code could expose the design of the company’s mega-successful messaging app, how it works and even planned future releases and features.

Oops.
