Facebook bug, Twitch flaw and 10 years without Steve Jobs … the summary of the tech news of the week

This week has been marked by many events. On Monday, Facebook fell victim to the biggest flaw in its history. Microsoft released Windows 11 on Tuesday while Apple honored the memory of Steve Jobs. On Wednesday, Amazon-owned Twitch was under a massive hack and saw all of its source code posted online. In short, for the Tech giants, this week has been particularly rich.

Here is a summary of the news of the week in addition to our weekly show What I Mail with François Sorel, Anthony Morel and Nicolas Lellouche.

In the turmoil, Facebook crashes

Bad news never comes alone. Target of many criticisms following the revelations of Frances Haugen, one of his former employees who accuses him of privileging profit over peace on his platform, Facebook suffered the biggest blackout in its history on Monday. For seven hours, Facebook, Messenger, Instagram and WhatsApp were inaccessible worldwide. An unprecedented bug that cost Facebook billions on the stock market.

Twitch victim of a huge leak

With 125 GB of data freely available on the web, Twitch could not have feared a worse situation. On Wednesday, a hacker released the entire source code for Amazon’s platform, unveiled its future plans (like Vapor, a Steam rival) and, as a bonus, revealed the turnover of the 10,000 plus big streamers. Amazon has confirmed that the flaw is genuine and speaks of a configuration error on its servers.
