ByDate: 06-10-2012 Views:
Due to the high popularity of League of Legends, maybe it is not a surprise to hear that it becomes the latest target for hackers. Riot Games has sent out an Email, notifying all EU West and EU Nordic & East League of Legends players that their account information may have been compromised.
The compromised details include some players' email address, encrypted account password, summoner name, date of birth. Luckily, no payment or billing information of any kind was included in the breach.
Riot Games posted an apology to the community for the breach, stating that they've fixed the issue and they are hiring experts to investigate and improve the security system. Meanwhile, Riot Games also implored all players to change their password as a precaution because "even though we store passwords in encrypted form only, our security investigation determined that more than half of the passwords were simple enough to be at risk of easy cracking."
