"These tokens could allow a malicious actor to view without permission some of your social media posts", they write, noting that this largely means access to posts a user posts on their own walls. Surprisingly, the account the attacker initially used to access the servers was not secured with two-factor authentication (i.e. when you need to authorize a login in a second way, typically with a code or app on your phone).
In an official statement, Timehop says it was able to stop the attack but not before the above data was stolen.
The New York-based startup discovered the attack at 2:04am US Eastern Time (7:04am BST) on July 4.
