Topic: Twitch hacked?

Posts 1 to 5 of 5


Anyone else had an email from Twitch regarding account security?

We are writing to let you know that 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 (which was cryptographically protected), the last IP address you logged in from, and any of the following if you provided it to us: first and last name, phone number, address, and date of birth.
For your protection, we have expired your password and stream keys. In addition, if you had connected your account to Twitter or YouTube, we have terminated this connection.
You will be prompted to create a new password the next time you attempt to log into your Twitch account. If applicable, you will also need to re-connect your account to Twitter and YouTube, and re-authenticate through Facebook, once you change your password. We also recommend that you change your password at any other website where you use the same or a similar password.
We apologize for this inconvenience.

Yup. Everybody should have gotten an email by now I think. I've had one for all the accounts I manage - even though it took about 24 hours between them

Yeah. I changed all my gaming passwords. Got some spam from China, read some broken English, the sort. No idea who hacked Twitch, but I do know where my info's gone. I have a friend who speaks Chinese fluently and when he gets calls from scam artists and whatnot, he puts on the accent and pretends he doesn't know English. It's great, except for the fact that it wouldn't work this time. Then again, he could just be like, "Yeah, I English speak well too."
