League of Legends (Riot Games) Accounts Compromised

It appears that account information for League of Legends has been compromised. As this is a popular game, we would like anyone that has an account with them to read their announcement:

http://beta.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/news/riot-games/announcements/important-security-update-and-password-reset

Furthermore, we HIGHLY recommend that you change your password on any account that used this same password. It is NOT a good idea to every re-use a password... but we know that people do it.

Thankies again~

Would it be possible to have an e-mail confirmation when trying to change your password here on Aeria? I don't really feel very safe.

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.  


they've only stolen salted hashed passwords, but they still have your email & usernames. Your passwords should be changed if you have a weak password.

Ideally, it should be changed anyway just to be safe.

Cracking salted MD5 is now a matter of hours, not days. They have made a lot of progress with decryption. I suggest you be cautious, and change passwords just to be safe.
