An anonymous hacker claims to have leaked the entirety of Twitch, including its source code and user payout information.
Video Game Chronicles “VGC” can verify that the files mentioned on 4chan are publicly available to download as described by an anonymous hacker.
The leaked Twitch data reportedly includes:
- The entirety of Twitch’s source code with comment history “going back to its early beginnings”
- Creator payout reports from 2019
- Mobile, Desktop, and Console Twitch clients
- Proprietary SDKs and internal AWS services used by Twitch
- “Every other property that Twitch owns” including IGDB and CurseForge
- An unreleased Steam competitor, codenamed Vapor, from Amazon Game Studios
- Twitch internal ‘red teaming’ tools (designed to improve security by having staff pretend to be hackers)
If you have a Twitch account the recommendation is to use the two-factor authentication, to further protect your account. That way if your password is compromised, they would still need your phone to prove the identity of the account.
Internally, Twitch is ware of the breach, and it is known that the data was obtained recently as of Monday. For more updated information, go to videogameschronicle.com
