Twitch is one of the most popular social networks of the moment. The platform that allows the live transmission of all types of content, has millions of users around the world.
For the same reason, many have been concerned with a possible massive leakage of the data that is part of this network.
An anonymous user has posted on 4Chan a link to a 125GB torrent file that he claims contains “the entirety of Twitch.”
In accordance with VGC, this database includes the massive leak of the source code, the payment data of the users and the money received by those who make the transmissions as of 2019.

VGC, which has accessed this file, does not indicate whether the content is real, but claims that it at least appears legitimate. The information has also been confirmed by other sites, such as The Verge. Meanwhile, a source has pointed out to the site that everything that has been leaked is real.
According to the post on 4Chan, this is what the file contains:
“The entirety of twitch.tv, with the commit history dating back to its inception. Twitch clients for mobiles, desktops and game consoles. Various proprietary SDKs and internal AWS services used by Twitch. All other Twitch properties, including IGDB and CurseForge. A Steam competitor not yet released by Amazon Game Studios called Steam. Twitch SOC internal network teaming tools ”.
UPDATE: another anon re-ran the math, something was fuckey about that first one.

The leaked file could also include users’ encrypted passwords, although this information has yet to be confirmed. However, it is recommended to modify it and activate the two-step verification.
What is also worrying is that the hacker claims that this leak is only the first part of all the content he plans to upload to the internet.
Video Games Chronicle also reports that Twitch is already aware of the security breach and that it believes the data may have been obtained this Monday, October 4.
