Lately, a data breach occurred at Amazon’s streaming platform Twitch. The data appears to include information about the company’s source code, clients, and unreleased games.

Twitch data leak was due to a server configuration issue
According to Twitch, the breach was caused by a change in server configuration. Twitch doesn’t store complete credit card numbers, according to the company, therefore such information was safe.
Twitch officials: “We have no indication that login credentials have been exposed. We are continuing to investigate.”
In addition, as a precautionary measure, Twitch has reset all stream keys. It has also given a link to acquire fresh stream keys. Software updates must be completed manually by users in order to begin the next stream, depending on the broadcasting software they’re using. No action is required for Twitch Studio, Streamlabs, PlayStation, Xbox, or the Twitch Mobile app users.
According to the company, users of OBS who have linked their Twitch account do not need to take any additional measures too. Users who have not linked their Twitch account to OBS will need to manually copy and paste their stream key from the Twitch Dashboard into OBS. Twitch claims that the probe is still ongoing and that the firm is still analyzing the impact in depth.
