“League of Legends” fallen victim to security breach

By on

In what may seem like a never-ending story, popular free-to-play RTS game League of Legends has also fallen victim to a security breach – but it has not confirmed if and how many passwords were stolen. It joins LinkedIn, eHarmony and Last.FM in reporting breaches this week.

Riot Games, the makers of the RTS game, noted that data was stolen from its European servers. It also noted that emails, encrypted passwords, names, date of birth and, for some, their encrypted security question and answers were accessed. No billing or payment data information was included in the breach, apparently.

The security hole, according to Riot, has been fixed and they’ll be notifying all players in its European servers via email. They’ve also asked users to, obviously, change your passwords.
