League of Legends - Important Security Update and Password Reset

Recommended Posts

he security of your information is critically important to us, so we’re really sorry to share that a portion of our North American account information was recently compromised.

 

What we know: usernames, email addresses, salted password hashes, and some first and last names were accessed. This means that the password files are unreadable, but players with easily guessable passwords are vulnerable to account theft.

 

Additionally, we are investigating that approximately 120,000 transaction records from 2011 that contained hashed and salted credit card numbers have been accessed. The payment system involved with these records hasn't been used since July of 2011, and this type of payment card information hasn't been collected in any Riot systems since then. We are taking appropriate action to notify and safeguard affected players. We will be contacting these players via the email addresses currently associated with their accounts to alert them. Our investigation is ongoing and we will take all necessary steps to protect players.

Every password I have is generated by this application and all 100+ accounts I have entered have a different password. I just use one passphrase (not a short password) and have access to all my accounts. When security breaches inevitably happen, I just generate a new password
