Twitch streaming service by Amazon suffered a mega-leak, which includes the site’s source code, several unannounced and unreleased projects. The leaks also have sensitive information such as how much individual steamers are making in terms of money. The company tweets confirmed the occurrence of such an incident and that their team is working with urgency to understand the extent of this.
On 6th of October, Twitch, a streaming service owned by Amazon (parent company) suffered from a huge data breach. Data like the site’s source code, several unannounced and unreleased projects. The leaks also have sensitive information such as how much individual steamers are making in terms of money.
Twitch has since confirmed that the breach is a 135GB file also including users’ encrypted passwords and reference to a Steam competitor in the works took place, and they are working on it.
Big names like shroud, moistcr1tikal, Ludwig, xQc, Pokimane and many more were on the list of payout leaks. A small section of the users were in a shock, realising the amount of paychecks their favourite streamers were getting.
A cleverly named and unannounced play store folder was spotted in the leaks. The name of the project is mocking the current most used playstore for games – Steam. The secret project by Twitch is – “Vapour” or “Vapor”.
Further assets from the ‘Vapeworld’ element suggest something akin to Playstation Home. Data-diver Sinoc reckons it’s “some sort of VR chat thing” and dug up, among other things, a 3D Bob Ross chat emote and a Hearthstone card.
