Twitch company data leaked and published online

Amazon-owned gaming company Twitch announced that company data had been leaked because of an error on one of the company’s servers. Analysts say the leak includes lots of company information. Twitch said it was investigating the leak but stressed that “full credit card numbers are not stored by Twitch, so full credit card numbers were not exposed”.

The leaked data has been published on the internet and has been estimated to be more than 100GB of data.
