Before reading any posts on HNB, we would like to tell you that every post here is for your online security, safety or for awareness, and we do not teach hacking through our articles, if you find something which is being used to damage your online property or something like that, REPORT HERE.

Online Gaming Lovers who plays the popular online game “League of Legends” must change their passwords because it seems that you have been hacked, according to a security bulletin released by Riot Games,  portion of our North American account information was recently compromised.

According to officials, what has been hacked:

  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • Usernames
  • Email addresses
  • Salted password hashes

Something Major is here to worry more because approximately 120,000 transaction records from 2011 that contained hashed and salted credit card numbers have been accessed.

A Part of Security bulletin reads:

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.

The added security measures may also include two-factor authentication, where changes to account email or password “will require verification via email or mobile SMS.”
