Sad news Twitch fans: the next time you log on to the streaming service, you'll find that your password has been reset. That's due apparently to a security breach; Twitch published a blog post a few hours ago stating that there "may have been unauthorized access to some Twitch user information" and that the company has suspended passwords and stream keys across all its accounts. It's also disassociated all of them from Twitter and YouTube so you'll need to authorize them all over again. As with any security breach, Twitch also suggests you change the password if you used it anywhere else. We're not quite sure yet on the breadth of the hack and who exactly is involved, but Twitch has said it'll "communicate directly with affected users" on any additional steps.
