Amazon.com Inc.-owned streaming platform Twitch confirmed that documents from its source code repository and some creator payout data were exposed in a data leak.

Twitch said "we've undergone a thorough review of the information included in the files exposed and are confident that it only affected a small fraction of users and the customer impact is minimal."

Last week, information that appeared to include source codes and user payouts was leaked on the online chat forum 4chan. At the time, Twitch confirmed there was a leak but didn't specify what it included.

"Twitch passwords have not been exposed," Twitch said Friday. "We are also confident that systems that store Twitch login credentials, which are hashed with bcrypt, were not accessed, nor were full credit card numbers or ACH / bank information."
