It seems like another epidemic of indiscriminate account hacking is picking up steam. The recent LinkedIn security breach is followed by another break-in, this time targeting Riot Games and its hugely popular League of Legends. Riot’s EU West, EU Nordic and East account databases have been compromising, granting attackers access to account info, email addresses, names and security members for an undisclosed number of users.
Fortunately, users’ credit information wasn’t stored in any of the accessed locations. “Brandon and I want to sincerely and personally apologize to you for this situation,” Riot’s Marc Merrill wrote. “We take your privacy and security seriously, and we’re working diligently to improve it for the better.”
