From FP Discord:

QuoteHey @everyone, please excuse the ping but it feels important to notify you that there's a chance that Twitch info has been hacked and/or leaked. We strongly recommend that you change your password and enable two-factor authentication (which you should use for all your logins anyway) on Twitch immediately. Also consider changing your stream key, even if you don't stream. It's better to be safe than sorry.

To recap: The source code for Twitch has possibly been stolen and/or leaked, and according to people who have begun looking through the released files it may include a database of password hashes. Changing your password and enabling two-factor authentication is a good way to make sure that you are most protected against anything that could arise from this.

Here is a direct link to the Security page in your user settings, from where you can change your password and update 2FA settings: https://www.twitch.tv/settings/security

I've changed my password and I'll be regenerating my stream key later.

What a pain!

Sounds like they could have gotten any payment info or connected account info from the breach, like paypal or eft connections.  I never made affiliate so I have no monetization connected to mine.

My Amazon Prime is connected, I wonder if that would be exposed?
