Twitch Reportedly Hacked

The streaming site, Twitch, has apparently been hacked by something that has gained “unauthorized access” to users’ account information.

Twitch posted an update on its site, stating:

We are writing to let you know that there may have been unauthorized access to some Twitch user account information.

For your protection, we have expired passwords and stream keys and have disconnected accounts from Twitter and YouTube. As a result, you will be prompted to create a new password the next time you attempt to log into your Twitch account.

We also recommend that you change your password at any website where you use the same or a similar password. We will communicate directly with affected users with additional details.

Sincerely,
Twitch Staff

Also according to Twitch, these hackers may have gained access to not only peoples’ Twitch usernames and passwords, but also the last IP address they logged in from, limited credit card information, and any other info users may have given to Twitch including: first and last name, phone number, address, and date of birth.

Hopefully, not too many people were affected by these hacks. If you have a Twitch account, I would log on as soon as possible so you can get your password changed.
