Hit the reset button

[Update: In an email notice, Twitch asserts “there may have been unauthorized access to some of your Twitch user account information, including possibly your Twitch username and associated email address, your password, the last IP address you logged in from, limited credit card information (card type, truncated card number and expiration date), and any of the following if you provided it to us: first and last name, phone number, address, and date of birth.”

The website “does not store or process full credit or debit card information, so your card number is safe.” Although passwords are held “in a cryptographically protected form, we believe it’s possible that your password could have been captured in clear text by malicious code when you logged into our site on March 3rd.”]

Twitch has apparently been hacked, as it has released a statement explaining it has reset not only all passwords, but also all stream keys. It has also unlinked all accounts from other social media websites. Twitch recommends changing your password on other sites if you use the same password and will be reaching out to affected users with additional details.

A Twitch representative declined to elaborate on the breach when pressed for further comment.
