Report: Twitch Hit by Massive Data Breach

Twitch has reportedly suffered a massive data breach revealing its source code, an unreleased Steam competitor from Amazon Game Studios, and other information from as recently as Oct. 4.

Video Games Chronicle (VGC) reports that a 4chan user publicly shared the compromised data by way of a 125GB torrent link. An anonymous source confirmed the legitimacy of the leaked data, VGC says, and indicated that Twitch is aware of the incident. But the company has not yet responded to our request for comment or publicly acknowledged the breach.

The leaked data is said to include the source code used in the primary Twitch platform as well as its client apps for desktop PCs, video game consoles, and mobile devices; information about proprietary software development kits and Amazon Web Services offerings used by the service; and data from Twitch-owned properties such as the Internet Games Database and CurseForge.
