Twitch data breach

Twitch had a data breach… apparently payment data has been stolen! Check if you have any suspicious transactions and if so, block the card and get another one issued.

An anonymous hacker has reportedly leaked the entirety of Twitch, including source code and creator payouts.

Big stuff, I was reading that there are stream keys (private keys for direct access to channels) as well as confidential data of the streamers… Nothing more likely that in the weeks to come there could be a dump of user data, including payment cards…

If you support any streamers on Twitch contact your bank (or Curve, if you’ve connected that :slightly_smiling_face: ) and enable two-step verification on Twitch, Amazon, and (maybe) everything else! :grin:

Additionally, full credit card numbers are not stored by Twitch, so full credit card numbers were not exposed.
