League of Legends Servers Hacked, User Information Stolen

Posted on August 21, 2013 AT 02:32am

Riot Games has confirmed that hackers have managed to access around 120,000 transaction records that were stored on its servers.

Usernames, email addresses, and passwords were all accessed. Users need not worry too much though as all passwords were hashed and salted, but Riot warns that you may be at risk if you password is easily guessable. Credit Card details captured during this hack haven’t been used since 2011, according to Riot, so payments made after this time are still safe.

“As a measure to make your accounts safer, within the next 24 hours we’ll require players with accounts in North America to change their passwords to stronger ones that are much harder to guess,” the developer wrote on its official blog. ”At such time, you’ll be automatically prompted to change your password when you attempt to log in to the game. If you’d prefer, please click here to change your password now.”
