Exposed: Future Product Plans on Amazon Video Site

Amazon’s video game streaming site, Twitch.tv, was hacked by an unknown party on Wednesday night. The hacker published more than a thousand pages of data taken from the website’s servers online for all to see.

The leaked documents include information about unreleased products like features planned for the company’s Fire TV set-top box and mobile applications for Android and iOS devices, as well as competitive intelligence on some of Amazon’s partners in the game industry – including Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA), Microsoft Xbox Live (MS) and Valve Corporation.

The hacker also published internal Amazon documents such as employee network credentials and various company configuration files, including the ones related to the Amazon Web Services (AWS). Some of those AWS configs might even contain secret access keys.

Some of the leaked data contains details about upcoming features planned for Twitch’s mobile apps for Android and iOS devices, including notifications for “new channels that you might like” and alerts when your stream goes offline.

The most worrying part of all is that, since the hacker published the user cookies used by Twitch to track logged-in users across its pages, it may be possible to use those cookies to access some Twitch accounts.
