EU League of Legends Accounts Compromised

The European League of Legends Website apologizes to users over account compromises, saying: "we're sorry to share that hackers accessed some player account information." They say that: "The most critical data accessed included email address, encrypted account password, summoner name, date of birth, and for a small number of players first and last name and encrypted security question and answer. (Note: Security question and answer are no longer used in our account recovery process.) Absolutely no payment or billing information of any kind was included in the breach." Saying: "We take your privacy and security seriously, and we're working diligently to improve it for the better," they warn that players should change their passwords in spite of encryption, saying: "security investigation determined that more than half of the passwords were simple enough to be at risk of easy cracking." Thanks Eurogamer.

Imagine if this was a Blizzard story - would already have 200+ posts....just sayin....

Eh (aside from the obvious fact that, duh, Blizzard owns the world so that's a given), it happened a couple of days ago at this point, so anyone who plays the game actively probably already knows all about it (old news is old) and discussed it in their official forums or any number of other gaming sites and blogs that carried the news yesterday or the night before. Additionally, it only affected accounts in "certain European regions", so it's not a game-wide thing. So yeah, meh.
