Some Hacker hacked into the system of league of legends and hacked the first name, second name and email addresses of the users. Most of the data was about the North American users and nearly 120,000 users were affected by it.


Riot Games, in an online blog, stated that password files were unreadable. But even if the hacker doesn’t have the passwords of the users, he can try making different guesses with the usernames. So the users with easily guessable passwords are Vulnerable to account theft. As a general rule you should never use an easily guessable password at any place. Your account at any place contains a lot of personal information of yours. So you should always use a complex password that contains alphabets, numbers, special characters and uppercase and lowercase characters.

Riot games also stated the salted passwords and salted bank account numbers were also accessed by the hacker. But these were old files from 2011 so users don’t need to worry about that. This was the 2 years old data and don’t make a lot of difference.
