Twitch confirmed on Wednesday that it has suffered a data breach.
The Amazon-owned video platform didn’t disclose the extent of the breach, but earlier in the day an anonymous 4chan user posted more than 120 gigabytes of Twitch data, which they claimed included the platform’s source code and information about how much Twitch users earn.
“We can confirm a breach has taken place. Our teams are working with urgency to understand the extent of this. We will update the community as soon as additional information is available. Thank you for bearing with us.,” Twitch said in a statement Wednesday. No further update has been provided.
According to Video Games Chronicle, the information was leaked to “foster more disruption and competition in the online video streaming space,” due to what they say Twitch’s “disgusting toxic cesspool” community.
Amazon bought Twitch in 2014 for almost $1 billion.
