The game live broadcast platform Twitch has been hacked recently, resulting in the outflow of a large number of website source code, causing all partners’ pre-tax income from 2019 to the present to be exposed, even including the income data of the platform live broadcaster. The public income includes many Hong Kong and Taiwan live broadcasters, such as Dago, Hualun, Wu Gongzi, and Toyz, who is involved in drug trafficking. Among them, the average monthly income of live broadcasters can exceed 3 million Hong Kong dollars, which makes many netizens lament that “it turned out to be a lot of money by playing the phone.”
According to foreign media reports, Twitch was hacked on the afternoon of the 6th, causing a large-scale data breach. The outflow of Twitch data this time exceeds 125GB, which includes the total pre-tax income from 2019 to October 2021. This income includes subscription fees, advertising fees, and the combined income of the small singularity (platform points). But speculation does not include the audience donation that does not go through Twitch, and the commercial cooperation of the live broadcaster is not included.
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.
