Amazon's Twitch Resets Passwords Over Possible Security Breach

Amazon Inc's Twitch unit said on Monday there may have been unauthorized access to some of its user account information, according to the live streaming gaming network's official blog.

Twitch said it had expired passwords and stream keys, and disconnected accounts from Twitter and YouTube to protect the users.

As a result, the consumers will be prompted to create a new password the next time they try to log into their Twitch account, according to a message on its official blog.

We are writing to let you know that there may have been unauthorized access to some Twitch user account information.

For your protection, we have expired passwords and stream keys and have disconnected accounts from Twitter and YouTube. As a result, you will be prompted to create a new password the next time you attempt to log into your Twitch account.

We also recommend that you change your password at any website where you use the same or a similar password. We will communicate directly with affected users with additional details.

Amazon bought Twitch Interactive last year for $970 million, beating out a rival bid from Google Inc.
