League of Legends Hack – EU Accounts Were Breached

Posted by at 12:56 pm on June 11, 2012

League of Legends accounts in certain European regions have been hacked, Riot Games notified players yesterday. The EU West and EU Nordic and East databases were breached, with hackers accessing email addresses, encrypted account passwords, summoner names, dates of birth and, for a small number of players, full names and security questions and responses.

“Absolutely no” billing or payment information was breached, Riot said. Riot stores passwords in encrypted form, but more than half of the passwords at risk were simple enough to fall victim to simple cracking.

Riot has fixed the security exploit and is emailing all players in the affected region, and will be updating this post. Security experts and the appropriate authorities have been notified, Riot said.

I f you play League of Legends players you would be wise to change your password.
