The data breach on Twitch

October 7, 2021

The company that owns Twitch, Amazon, mentioned that it had suffered a data breach.

On Twitter, the company wrote the following: We can confirm that a violation has occurred. Our teams are working urgently to understand the scope of this. We will update the community as soon as additional information is available. Thanks for supporting us.

The video game news platform Videogames Chronicle reported that a hacker claimed to have leaked all Twitch source code and user payment information.

On the other hand, an article highlighted the hacker's motive: "Fostering more disruption and competition in the online video streaming space."

Once this happened, Twitch and Amazon did not comment on any of this immediately until later.
