Amazon. com Inc.-owned Twitch Interactive, the videogame streaming platform, said Wednesday it suffered a data breach, with information leaked on the online chat forum 4chan.
The 4chan user who allegedly posted Twitch data said they did so to hurt Twitch’s business. The person claimed to have access to information including Twitch source code, internal security tools and creator payouts.
Twitch confirmed the breach. “Our teams are working with urgency to understand the extent of this,” the company wrote on Twitter.
