Snapchat Mobile Application Detection

info Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 8017
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote mobile host was detected using Snapchat.


The remote host was detected using the Snapchat mobile app. Snapchat is an image-sharing mobile app that runs on iOS and Android. Using the app, users can take photos, record videos, add text and drawings, and send them to a selective list of recipients for a controlled amount of time, after which it is expected that the image will be erased or otherwise inaccessible. There are, however, ways to bypass this expectation.
