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.

From the official twitch.tv blog:

TL;DR: DON’T PANIC – We were not hacked. Our web CDN made a requested change without obeying our caching ruleset, which resulted in some caching that had a (very, very) slim probability of revealing a limited amount of your account information. To be cautious, we’re changing stream keys and requiring a password reset on your next login. Finally, no payment information was exposed as we do not store any of this information.
We’ll continue to update regarding when the site will be restored, but we wanted to make sure that you change any passwords on other sites that are the same or similar to the password you use on Twitch.

Twitch.tv seems to be back up now. I'm getting alot of 403 errors though and my following list seems to be broken. Also when I logged in it didn't request me to change my pass so I did it manualy. Hopefully the following list will be working soon though.
