    League of Legends is hacked, with crucial user info accessed

    Hackers have breached the system of one of the world's most popular online video games: League of Legends.

    Riot Games, which developed League of Legends, announced Tuesday that some usernames, e-mail addresses, salted password hashes, first and last names, and even some salted credit card numbers have been accessed. The salted data is somewhat protected, but if users have easily guessable passwords, their information could be susceptible to theft, Riot Games warned.

    Thankfully it only effected NA users, however, it's unfortunate regardless.

    Had to change my password. No biggie, I had used only prepaid Visas so the most they could ever steal is a couple of dollars.
