Twitch compromised: What we know so far, and what you need to do

Excerpt: There’s still no independent verification from Twitch itself yet. However, multiple people have confirmed that the leak details, which include streamer revenue numbers, match what they have in fact generated.

What has happened?

A 128GB torrent was released on the 4chan message board. The poster claims it incorporates all of Twitch including:
Source code for desktop, mobile, and console clients
3 years of creator payouts
Some form of unreleased Steam competitor
Various bits of data on several Twitch properties
Internal security tools
