I read about the major hack into snapchat DB and tbh, I could care less about that, it was only a matter of time for that to happen. What i'm more concerned about is I got a notificatoin this morning from snapchat, which I haven't used in months, and noticed I had a snapchat FROM MYSELF, and upon viewing it in my freshly awoken stupor, it was more or less an old fashioned emergency broadcast but it mentioned something about zombies and in the center of the image had a url. I can't remember if it was tinyurl or some other sort of shortening url service, but i neglected to screenshot it fast enough and no matter how hard I google I can't find any information on it because of this who DB leak thing.

Has anybody else received this message too?

I'd suggest you to scan your phone with av first. Trustgo had the best detection rate, so try this one first.

i have avast, but either way those programs typically just scan for malware and bloatware and/or ciq.

No idea how did this got into your snapchat, but the message on pastebin is about free speech and stuff, so its safe, but I actually have no idea what the guys that did it want to accomplish by doing this. English at level master required to understand this so I understood about 7/10 of this :P

Yeah I got the same snapchat zombie message from my own account!! Link is just to pastebin.com/1QN8WDyU, read the same freedom and ideas speech stuff, think it's a comment on recent hacks or something. Although did notice something amusing, read the first letter of each line.. can't believe didn't see it before!
