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.
