Twitch confirms massive data breach

As we suggested several months ago, the Twitch sharing platform was the victim of a very important leak in which a lot of information appears. Among these, we can also find the income of the various streamers, as well as technical data concerning the site itself… After digging through some other leaked emails from Microsoft’s internal spam team (and finding quite a few more documents) here is my take on what went down and how it affects us all: So let me introduce you to « Thing 1. » This email sent by an IT guy who goes under two pseudonyms inside MSN has been circulating around over Twitter for days now, mostly aimed at tech companies looking after their own customers online but including those working with social media like Facebook, Yahoo!, LinkedIn etc. As part ‘anti-spam’ campaign he provides details about his job title (He seems pretty happy trying).
