Twitch Suffers Major Breach

Twitch has confirmed that they have suffered a major data breach when a hacker accessed the company’s servers. 

Twitch made a statement admitting that “some data was exposed to the internet due to an error in a Twitch server configuration change that was subsequently accessed by a malicious third party”

Twitch admits a hacker was able to access data that was mistakenly exposed to the internet “due to an error in a Twitch server configuration change that was subsequently accessed by a malicious third party.” The company says it has “no indication that login credentials have been exposed,” and that “full credit card numbers were not exposed.”

They confirmed that user details seemed to be safe at this moment as they “have no indication that login credentials have been exposed”. They also confirmed that as “full credit card numbers are not stored by Twitch” users payment information was not at risk. 

The Verge released an article with further information including that this may only be “Part 1” of the hack.
