I'm finishing CCNA - Security at the moment and online security is extremely important the fact that riot is reacting this fast means that they are well organized and aware

Fellow summoners pass the word to your friends that play and game buddys so that no one gets left in the dark

First of all thank you for telling us.

Regarding the safety of the passwords it would be really nice if you would allow us to use pass phrases this would be alot safer.

Riot, do like blizard did. Use Athendicators to help protect accounts from being hacked.
Would be really nice if you could do that in the future.

Just out of curiosity: only the affected players will receive an e-mail or everyone in the mentioned platforms?

Because Riot Lomar states the former while Tryndamere the latter.

(If I got it right! )


As the official news states, the affected players of EUW and EINE will receive an e-mail in a bit.

Today night on my friend account have dissapeared 5 champions and near 15 skins. Can somebody explain that?


Have your friend contact player support at support.leagueoflegends.com, they'll get to the bottom of it.

So you keep all the passwords under an Encryption, I'm sorry but do you use like 12 Bit encryption or something, This is completely unacceptable and even the most basic security measures can be taken to completely avoid this, step up to the plate guys ...
Invest in some 128 Bit encryption and stop slacking.
