Unless your actually lying about the passwords being encrypted, it's just simple stuff that you havn't done, as well as the comment about email verification to change your passwords, I have never seen a big company not use this, but yours doesn't.


i think this is very valid, and wouldnt be surprised if it was the route of the problem..

When was it breached? I changed my password yesterday. Do I have to change it again?

Last time I changed my pass, I'd still write in my old one out of habit. The site refused it, but the client would actually accept both the old and new pass. This only stopped after the Darius patch (1st after it started happening)

My question: Is it worth it to change my pass? If the old one keeps working, how can I stop it from doing so?

Haha, oh well.
The fun thing I see in this, is that this proves that the community really knows that Riot is a really really unique company.
They do everything they can to make the game enjoyable for us, have probably the best customer support I have ever experienced, so what happens if they get hacked and personal information gets stolen?
The community forgives them, is even thankful that they immediately shared this information.

Just imagine this kind of thread would appear on other certain forums...

Even though we store passwords in encrypted form only, our security investigation determined that more than half of the passwords were simple enough to be at risk of easy cracking


For those who think that a 6 char password is "good enough" this is mostly to you.

And here come the shameless opportunists.

This was hardly the result of a screw up on Riot's end. As someone else has posted, if hackers can get into the Pentagon, they can get into Riot. So maybe we can show a modicum of understanding, and not immediately search for ways in which we can profit from this, perhaps?
