In a blog post, Amazon-owned video gaming giant Twitch told users that no passwords or payment card numbers were stolen or leaked online from its massive hack.
Twitch also said it reset all stream keys as a result of the incident. Users who stream on the site will likely need to obtain a new one from their Twitch profile backends. Twitch believes the breach, which resulted in a massive torrent of its system data posted on 4chan, occurred because of an error in a Twitch server configuration change that a malicious third party subsequently accessed.
