The entire streaming service Tic was reportedly hacked by an anonymous attacker, who disclosed a 125 GB torrent containing its source code and user payment information.
The hacker posted the torrent link on 4chan, explaining that the information was leaked to “foster more disruption and competition in the online video streaming space” because “their community is a disgusting toxic cesspool.”
VGC note that the torrent looks legitimate, although like them we obviously aren’t going to link to it here. However, it is supposed to include the following:
- Twitch’s source and comment history “goes back to its early days”
- 2019 Creator Payment Reports
- Mobile, desktop and console Twitch clients
- Proprietary SDKs and internal AWS services used by Twitch
- “All other properties that Twitch owns,” including IGDB and CurseForge
- Vapor, an unprecedented Steam competitor from Amazon Game Studos
- Twitch’s internal ‘red bundling’ tools

A number of Twitter users have already started reviewing the torrent themselves, with one user claiming that it also contains encrypted passwords, therefore recommending that Twitch users change their passwords just in case. Additionally, the torrent reportedly includes Unity code for a game called Vapeworld.
