Change Your Passwords, Twitch Got Hacked

Your username, email, password, IP address, name, number, address, date of birth could all have been accessed.


Users of videogame streaming site, Twitch, have received a message from the company telling them their information could be at risk after a suspected hacking.

Twitch emailed users saying it's possible "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" have all been accessed. They also said they had expired passwords and terminated connections to accounts on other sites.

Twitch was bought by Amazon last year for $1 billion and has millions of users around the world.

So yeah... go change your passwords for everything now.
