Document analysis company Elevate told messaging app Snap that an unauthorized party had accessed some of Elevate’s computer systems in March 2022 and accessed some employee data of Snap, Reuters news report said.
Snap uses services of Elevate. Snap said it notified the people affected and would not use the vendor for similar services in the future.
Snap sent a letter to a former employee on Sept. 13, saying the hacker had accessed name, address, employment history and compensation information.
The letter said Snap was terminating its relationship with Elevate, which also provides services to law firms, according to its website.
A Snap spokesperson confirmed only that an unspecified outside vendor experienced a data breach that exposed personal information of some of current and former team members, adding that no Snapchat users were affected.
