Gaming site Amazon Twitch may have been hacked

Amazon Twitch has warned of a ‘possible unauthorised access’ to some user account information on the live-stream gaming network.

Twitch has announced that it has expired passwords, stream keys and disconnected accounts from YouTube and Twitter to protect its users.

An official blog post stated that:

Amazon-Twitch-hacking“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.
