The streaming platform Twitch had its source code, history and payment data completely leaked after a hacker attack on Wednesday 6. However, it didn’t take long for criminals to figure out ways to break into the site and cause new problems.
This Friday, the 8th, the platform was defaced, and received photos of Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos on the front page. According to user reports, attackers have placed images of Bezos on popular game banners on the platform.
In the first attack, an anonymous user posted a 125-gigabyte link on the 4Chan forum, claiming it sought to “promote disruption and competition in the online streaming space” as the “community [da Twitch] it’s a disgusting toxic cesspool.”
The leak was titled “Part One”, suggesting that more is to come. According to the message posted by the hacker, the file includes:
- 3 years of information on payments made to streamers na Twitch;
- All twitch.tv source code;
- Mobile console, desktop and video game Twitch clients;
- SDKs (tools that enable software development) and internal AWS services (Amazon Web Services) used by Twitch;
- Data on other Twitch properties such as IGDB and CurseForge;
- Built-in security tools
The hacker also released an unreleased app from Amazon Game Studios and all its source code, called Vapor. The supposed game store would be a future competitor to Steam.
