Due to a recent security breach, Twitch has reset all user passwords and stream keys. Now all users will need to reset their password in order to be able to log in.
In this bulletin today, Twitch stated, “We also recommend that you change your password at any website where you use the same or a similar password.”
Twitch further stated that any users who were directly affected by the breach will be contacted with additional details.
Twitch declined any further comment on the breach.
Here is a copy of the email I received:
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.
