An anonymous hacker attacked Amazon.com Inc’s video game streaming platform Twitch and earlier today leaked a trove of critical data including Twitch’s source code and a spreadsheet detailing earnings for the platform’s top gamers.

Leaks on the social media platform 4Chan, popular among conspiracy theorists and gamers, claim to include the entirety of the platform’s Twitch.tv streaming history and an Amazon Game Studios product, still under development, designed to challenge Valve Corp’s dominant Steam storefront. Bloomberg has reported previously on Amazon’s plans for a digital game store.
