one very stupid possible reason the snapchat videos became available

it is an reason that was given by one of the snapchatters but it wouldn't surprise me

a third service to which you have given the rights and that goes bad because of bad coding and so makes all of its data available to everybody - of which some take everything from everybody and distribute it like this (a huge leak)

"Over the last few days, content has been leaked from a site called Snapsaved.com. The content released from this site was provided to us by the administrator of the site. Users could freely browse all media on this website, and view as per user account. When the site became unusable, the administrator compiled a full directory of the content and uploaded it to an un-indexed website where you could freely download it.
These images were saved by individuals on the aforementioned website, so they could freely browse their saved SnapChat images. SnapChat service is supposed to provide a temporary means of transferring images and videos to your friends, family and acquaintances. Multiple times over the last few years the privacy element of SnapChat has been questioned and rightly so. Due to the misconception of SnapChat’s business model, people have the illusion that media they send will be temporary and cannot be saved. They have put their faith in a system that is clearly broken and I wish to raise awareness to this fact.

it is high time that third services who want a connection to another service especially if it is a big service with many legal responsabilities and an enormous userbase with a high risk settings on their content will have to abide to the same rules and controls and security-investments as the main services themselves

meanwhile I would from now on block all my third services that have access to confidential data

some others are saying it is fake or that there are versions that are faked with porn in it to make it more attractive

there are also a big number of scams already out there, trying to get you to download something in which deepdown malware is hidden, so don't download this stuff (which is illegal in some countries anyway) without having an updated antivirus
