League of Legends EU Accounts Compromised

We are no strangers to Riot Game’s PC MOBA title League of Legends here at Broken Joysticks. It’s disheartening to hear that the games West and Nordic European servers have been compromised and encrypted passwords & email addresses have been placed in the hands of those who would use them for harm.

The company says that no billing related information has been obtained by the hackers but if they were to un-encrypt the passwords used for the small number of LOL accounts compromised, that would be bad.

If you live in Europe and have an active LOL account it wouldn’t be a bad idea to simply login and change your password. You also might want to make sure that the same password is not used for any other online service.
