Twitch breach

Twitch, a prominent video game live-streaming site, said in its most recent report on the confirmed breach of its systems that the attackers did not get their hands-on customers’ login data.

Twitch shared “Twitch passwords have not been exposed. We are also confident that systems that store Twitch login credentials, which are hashed with bcrypt, were not accessed, nor were full credit card numbers or ACH / bank information”.

An unnamed hacker claimed a few weeks ago that he had exposed the entirety of Twitch, including its source code and users’ personally identifiable information (PII).

It acknowledged the breach and has been investigating it since then, releasing regular updates, the most recent of which downplayed the hack’s significance.

Twitch has maintained from the initial update revealing the breach. The event would not have revealed user information, although admitting that “some data was exposed to the internet.”

Later, Twitch announced that out of an excess of caution, it has reset all users’ streak keys.

According to Twitch, a mistake caused the breach during a Twitch server configuration update. Hostile individuals exploited that to obtain unauthorized access to the server.

Twitch says it has solved the problem that caused the breach and has thoroughly investigated the situation.

According to Twitch, the exposed data largely consisted of documents from Twitch’s source code repository, as well as a portion of creator reward data. Twitch also claims that the hack only affected a tiny percentage of subscribers.
