Videogame focused live video streaming platform (and new Xbox 360 / Xbox One partner) Twitch.tv is down at the moment, but even once it's restored users will have to reset their passwords and stream keys. That information comes directly from the site's official blog, which blames the issue on a caching problem with its web CDN partner. Some users are worried the site may have been hacked since prior to its shutdown, many suddenly found themselves viewing accounts that belonged to other people and now all the login information has been cleared. The company continues to state that isn't the case and belief to the contrary is related to an outdated outage message (from its original incarnation as the Gaming section of Justin.tv) but it may be worth keeping an eye on if you have an account with the site. It should be back up shortly, but apparently "10s of millions of accounts resets takes quite a bit of time."
